BRUSSELS - Iran's expansion of sensitive nuclear activity breaks United Nations resolutions and increases concerns about whether its nuclear program is entirely peaceful, the European Union said on Thursday.

A UN nuclear agency report released on Wednesday showed Iran was expanding nuclear activities, in clear violation of resolutions of both the UN Security Council and of the board of the world body's International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the EU said.
