Iran's top nuclear negotiator: New UN sanctions would be wrong

Iranian top nuclear negotiator said Thursday that the UN nuclear watchdog report proves accusations that Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons are baseless and that new sanctions against the country would be wrong. Saeed Jalili said Tehran has answered all the questions by the International Atomic Energy Agency and made "good progress" in cooperating with it. In light of the IAEA report, "many accusations are now baseless," Jalili said, referring to US claims that Tehran was seeking to build nuclear weapons. "Those powers who base their accusations on this I hope will reconsider what they say."
