Iran warned on Wednesday that a likely UN Security Council resolution for imposing sanctions against Teheran would wreck any possibility for a compromise to resolve the standoff over the country's nuclear program. Iran's top nuclear negotiator, Ali Larijani, insisted Wednesday that continuing talks with EU foreign policy Chief Javier Solana is "still possible." But he warned that "in the case that a new resolution is passed by the Security Council, we will not be in the current point to resume possible talks. Resorting to arm-twisting through the Security Council would be considered a security threat to Iran and will change (Iran's) behavior," he said in an interview with the semi-official news agency Mehr. Larijani said the West knows that their path would incite regional crisis, but he reiterated that Iran is ready for unconditional talks.
