Iran's president accused UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon of parroting Western criticism of its new uranium enrichment facility instead of waiting for a report from the UN nuclear agency. The UN chief told a news conference Tuesday that he responded to the criticism from Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad by telling him the new facility violated UN Security Council resolutions. He said he also told Ahmadinejad during a meeting Friday that Iran needs to open all its facilities to inspection by the International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN nuclear watchdog, and be completely transparent. Ahmadinejad said Friday his country has complied with requirements to inform the IAEA six months before a new enrichment facility becomes operational, and was giving 18 months notice.
