Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad warned Wednesday against UN Security Council intervention into his country's disputed nuclear activities in a television interview.
His remarks came the same day that the Islamic Republic's top nuclear negotiator said that any new UN sanctions against Iran would end their cooperation with the organization's nuclear watchdog.
He did not say what Iran's reaction would be if the council impose new round of sanctions against his country, but negotiator Ali Larijani made it clear that sanctions would harm the country's relations with the IAEA.
"Cooperation will be in danger. The cooperation which is currently taking place with a positive outlook will be halted," Ali Larijani told reporters. "One side should not be smiling and the other side answer with a frown."
