Iran: Nuclear program to go on, despite sanctions

Iran will continue its nuclear program even if the United Nations imposes sanctions, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said Sunday, referring to the gathering international momentum toward punishing Iran for its enricment of uranium. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad also brushed off the threat of UN Security Council sanctions, telling state TV: "The nuclear case is already finished. We have closed it." "Our nation conquered the peak" of nuclear technology, Ahmadinejad said while touring a vote-counting center in Tehran that was tabulating the results of Friday's local elections.
