I’m sure it pains them to side with the US.

Tehran, 27 May (AKI) – Iran is ignoring United Nations’ demands that it suspend its uranium enrichment programme, according to the organisation’s nuclear watchdog.

“Contrary to the decisions of the (UN) Security Council, Iran has not suspended its enrichment related activities,” the International Atomic Energy Agency wrote in its latest report released on Monday.

The IAEA said Tehran had 3,500 uranium enrichment centrifuges at its Natanz nuclear facility, slightly more than earlier this year.

The organisation has been pressing Tehran for a response to western intelligence claims that Iran has covertly studied nuclear bombs.

Iran has denied that its uranium enrichment programme is being used for a nuclear weapon, insisting it is only for generating electricity.
