UN meeting rebukes Iran's nuclear defiance
VIENNA, Austria (AP) — The 35-nation board of the UN nuclear agency has overwhelmingly rebuked Iran for refusing to heed international demands that it take actions to diminish fears that it might be seeking atomic arms.
Only one country — Cuba — voted yesterday against a resolution drawn up by the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany. Ecuador, Tunisia and Egypt abstained, while the 31 other nations supported the resolution.
Iran denies any interest in wanting nuclear arms. But it has refused to comply with UN and IAEA demands to stop activities that could be used to make such weapons and allow a probe of suspicions it worked on an arms programme.
