TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s top nuclear negotiator said Sunday that Iran will expand — not suspend — uranium enrichment activities, in defiance of a U.N. Security Council resolution.
The resolution gave the Islamic Republic until August 31 to halt nuclear activities or face the threat of political and economic sanctions.
Ali Larijani called the U.N. Security Council resolution issued last week “illegal” and said Iran won’t respect the deadline. “We reject this resolution,” he told reporters.
“We will expand nuclear activities where required. It includes all nuclear technology including the string of centrifuges,” Larijani said, referring to the centrifuges Iran uses to enrich uranium….
“We won’t accept suspension,” he said.
