Iran said Sunday its nuclear activities have not halted or slowed down, rejecting reports that it has not significantly expanded its uranium enrichment program this summer as planned. "There has been no slowing down, no halt and no retreat. Our activities continue on the same basis we began our peaceful nuclear program," Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini told reporters. Hosseini was responding to speculation that the threat of more UN Security Council sanctions may have forced Iran to slow down its disputed uranium enrichment program.
