Facing the threat of new UN sanctions, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Monday the veto power held by the US and other permanent Security Council members is a "satanic tool."

"The world community doesn't need atomic bombs ... the Security Council or veto rights. These things are all for suppressing and destroying the nature of mankind and are satanic tools to keep human beings away from culture and morality," Ahmadinejad said in a speech to a gathering of policemen in Teheran, according to state television.
