Iran's top security body has riled against the latest UN sanctions imposed over Tehran's controversial nuclear program, saying they show world powers are applying a double standard.

The Supreme National Security Council says the US and other nuclear-armed powers have punished Iran even though it doesn't have nuclear weapons, while at the same time they support Israel, which is widely believed to have a sizable nuclear arsenal.

The Iranian council says there was no justification for the sanctions. The council's statement was released on Friday.

It says the UN nuclear watchdog has not found evidence that Tehran has diverted its nuclear program into weapons-making.
