A senior American diplomat chastised Iran on Saturday for vowing to press ahead with enriching uranium and producing nuclear fuel in defiance of US-led efforts to get it to stop. Gregory L. Schulte, the chief US representative to the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency, called it "sad and ironic" that Tehran's announcement coincided with IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei's acceptance in Oslo, Norway, of the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize.
