Iran says it will expand nuclear activities in defiance of UN Security Cou
http://www.khaleejtimes.com/DisplayArticleNew.asp?xfile...

TEHERAN, Iran - Irans top nuclear negotiator said on Sunday that Iran will expand uranium enrichment, in defiance of a UN Security Council resolution setting an August 31 deadline for the Islamic Republic to halt the activity or face the threat of political and economic sanctions. snip

He said Iran had not violated any of its obligations under the Nuclear Non Proliferation treaty, and that the UN had no right to require it suspend enrichment.

We wont accept suspension, he said.

Such resolutions wont have any impact on our behavior. We will expand our nuclear technology, he added.

However, Larijani said all Iranian nuclear activities would remain under the supervision of the UN nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency.

...this would be breaking news on every cable news channel.

I had to find this story at a UAE source.

That is odd. Isn't it?
