TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iran threatened on Friday to halt snap U.N. inspections of its nuclear facilities if it is taken to the U.N. Security Council, and Britain said the council would consider sanctions if Tehran defied international demands.
The United States and the European Union’s three biggest powers said on Thursday that nuclear talks with Iran were at a dead end and Tehran should be brought before the Council.
Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said such a step would have “consequences” for the West.
“The government will be obliged to end all of its voluntary measures if sent to the U.N. council,” he said.
