Iran stands firm against language in NPT document

May 1, 2007 17:14

Iran stood firm Tuesday in opposing language in a nuclear conference agenda that reaffirms the need for full compliance with the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, a stance that diplomats said could scuttle the meeting aimed at strengthening the accord. Amid closed door negotiations aimed at ending the impasse, France criticized Teheran for its defiance of a UN Security Council demand to freeze uranium enrichment, a potential pathway to nuclear arms, and urged it to "comply with its international obligations."
