Iran: 'Partial suspension of cooperation with UN'

An Iranian government spokesman said Sunday that Tehran was partially suspending cooperation with the UN nuclear watchdog agency, the Vienna-based IAEA, because of the latest UN Security sanctions imposed on it. "The government in a Cabinet meeting today decided to suspend code 1-3 of minor arrangements of the safeguards," Gholam Hossein Elham, the spokesman, told state TV. "This will continue until Iran's nuclear case is referred back to the IAEA from the UN Security Council." The code Elham referred expected the Iranian government to inform the International Atomic Energy Agency on any new steps and decisions made in its nuclear program.
