Iran's foreign minister denied Tuesday the remark of the UN nuclear chief that his country has temporarily slowed its nuclear program, insisting that Iran's enrichment of uranium was continuing unabated. "Iran's legitimate activities with the aim of producing fuel ... is continuing its natural trend," Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki told a press conference. "There has been no change in that course." The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Mohamed ElBaradei, said Monday that Iran appeared to have at least temporarily paused on the development of its uranium enrichment program.
