Iran condemns UN Security Council resolution as 'worthless'

Iran on Wednesday rejected a UN resolution imposing new sanctions for its refusal to halt uranium enrichment, calling it "worthless" and "politically-motivated." "This resolution is contrary to the spirit and articles of the International Atomic Energy Agency. It has been issued based on political motivations and a biased approach. It is worthless and unacceptable," Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini said, according to the state news agency IRNA.
