Iran slams UNSC sanctions resolution

December 23, 2006 20:03

Iran's Foreign Ministry has rejected the UN Security Council sanctions resolution calling it "invalid" and "illegal," and vowed to continue its uranium enrichment program. The UN Security Council unanimously approved the resolution Saturday imposing sanctions against Iran for refusing to suspend uranium enrichment, culminating two months of tough negotiations aimed at pressuring Teheran to return to negotiations and clarify its nuclear ambitions. The resolution orders all countries to ban the supply of specified materials and technology that could contribute to Iran's nuclear and missile programs.
