Via Fox News: Security Council Approves Resolution Imposing Sanctions Against Iran For Uranium Enrichment
UNITED NATIONS — The U.N. Security Council unanimously approved a resolution Saturday imposing sanctions against Iran for refusing to suspend uranium enrichment, culminating two months of negotiations aimed at pressuring Tehran to clarify its nuclear ambitions.And Iran responds....
TEHRAN, Dec 23, 2006 (AFP) - A hardline Iranian daily Saturday called on the government to withdraw from the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty if the UN Security Council agrees sanctions against Tehran over its controversial atomic programme.Do you believe in the tooth fairy? If so, you will probably believe this sanction will work and Russia, who is assisting Iran will be tough....what a joke!!
"Our officials should use this opportunity to punish the West and announce Iran's withdrawal from the NPT right after the resolution is adopted. Rest assured that nothing terrible will happen," said the Kayhan daily.
"The opponent is pointing an empty gun at us and this is a hollow threat," said the editorial by the paper's editor Hossein Shariatmadari, who is appointed by supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
