TEHRAN, Iran— Iran warned Thursday it will review relations with the UN nuclear watchdog, a day after the UN Security Council approved a fourth round of sanctions against Tehran over its disputed nuclear program.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad dismissed the sanctions as "annoying flies" and as useless as "used tissues."

Alaeddin Boroujerdi, the head of the Iranian parliament's powerful National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, described the sanctions as "political, illegal and illogical" and said lawmakers would quickly "begin a revision of Iran's relations" with the International Atomic Energy Agency.

He did not say what options would be discussed. But one possibility is Iran could restrict IAEA inspectors' access to nuclear facilities — making the country's nuclear program even more opaque.
