Iran warns of ”incorrect” decision by the United Nations Security Council
Iran Sunday said involvement of the United Nations Security Council in its nuclear case and adoption of "incorrect" decision by the council could turn the path of cooperation into confrontation.
According to IRNA, Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi stated during his weekly press conference that "Any measure by the Security Council will have adverse impacts on the trend of the Islamic Republic of Iran's cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)."
Asefi added a draft resolution prepared by Britain and France and backed by the US against Iran's nuclear program is politically motivated. "We think the IAEA should not be weakened."
The US on Saturday failed to convince the 15 Security Council members to approve the proposed draft resolution against Iran's peaceful nuclear program. "Involvement of the Security Council in Iran's nuclear case is totally illegal," he said.
The spokesman added, "Iran should not be expected to continue its cooperation with the IAEA if its case is not to be discuss at the IAEA and the Security Council is to take it up."
