Iranian envoy warns new UN sanctions would end nuclear cooperation

A senior Iranian envoy warned the United States and its allies on Wednesday against pushing for new UN Security Council sanctions against his country, suggesting Teheran could retaliate by ending cooperation with UN experts probing its nuclear program. US and European diplomats in turn criticized Tehran for not doing enough to ease international concerns and said its recent willingness to allow a partial probe of its past nuclear activities was not enough to banish fears it wanted to make an atomic bomb.
