Iran: New nuclear sanctions would doom cooperation

Iran's top nuclear negotiator warned on Tuesday that any new UN Security Council sanctions on his country would doom Iran's cooperation with the UN nuclear watchdog and render its talks with it "fruitless." According to state television, Ali Larijani also accused the United States of trying to undermine the progress made so far between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency, so as to increase tensions and pave way for new sanctions over Iran's controversial nuclear program. The comments came as senior IAEA and Iranian officials went into a second day of key talks in Teheran, in efforts to resolve remaining issues surrounding Iran's disputed uranium enrichment program.
