Iran votes to revise ties with UN nuclear agency

Iran's parliament voted Wednesday to urge the government to "revise" ties with the UN nuclear agency in a move seen as likely to reduce the country's cooperation with the international atomic authority. "Some 161 out of 203 present legislators voted in favor of the bill," parliamentary speaker Gholam Ali Haddad Adel said in a session broadcast live on state radio. The bill said that the government was "obliged to accelerate the country's peaceful nuclear program and revise in its cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency based on national interests."
