President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said today that Iran would “resist to the end” in defending its nuclear program. He said Iran will reveal “new nuclear achievements” if the U.N. Security Council passes another resolution against the Islamic Republic. Ahmadinejad did not specify what new achievements in nuclear technology Iran has reached.
The Security Council in March imposed a second round of sanctions against Iran for refusing to halt uranium enrichment work. That resolution followed one in December. Iran said last week that it was capable of industrial-scale enrichment, which prompted the U.S. to warn Iran that it was likely the U.N. Security Council would impose further and tougher penalties against the Islamic Republic.
