White House: Iran isolating itself with nuclear plans

White House Iran isolat

If Iran really does plan to building 10 new uranium enrichment facilities, then the development would be another instance of flaunting the United Nations, the White House said Sunday. Presidential spokesman Robert Gibbs notes that the UN nuclear watchdog agency had censured Iran for failing to live up to its obligations under various UN resolutions. Gibbs said that the Sunday report means that Iran is "choosing to isolate itself." Iran's state news agency reported that the government has approved the nuclear-building plan - just days after the UN agency demanded that Iran stop building a newly revealed enrichment facility and freeze all uranium enrichment activities.
