Iran to say No to the UN

As the deadline nears, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad refuses to give in to possible UN sanctions. Iran is set to reply Tuesday to an offer by world powers aimed at resolving a nuclear standoff.
If they don't accept, the UN will impose sanctions.

According to todays speech given by the Iranian Foreign Minister Manoucher Motakki in Pretoria, South Africa, it appears that they want sanctions. In his address he claims that the UN resolution against Iran is 'discriminatory', and Iran, 'insists on its statutory right to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes'.

The South African Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma said that Iran has a right to Nuclear energy, but must resolve their issues peacefully through the International Atomic Energy Agency.

In a speech given by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Bileh Savar this passed August 16, the president said, 'the Islamic Republic will not give up its right to full nuclear fuel cycle'.
