Iran warns it will move ahead with atomic program

A defiant Iran has warned the 35 board nations of the International Atomic Energy Agency that it will press ahead with full-scale uranium enrichment if they push for UN Security Council action this week over concerns Tehran is seeking nuclear arms. "If Iran's nuclear dossier is referred to the UN Security Council, (large scale) uranium enrichment will be resumed," Iran's top nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani told reporters in Tehran. "If they want to use force, we will pursue our own path." Larijani also said Iran would not abandon nuclear research, or back down from pursuing a peaceful nuclear program if the Security Council took action against it.
