According to Reuters the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) also said had done little during a 30-day grace period to answer questions meant to determine whether its nuclear activity is solely for civilian purposes.
ian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said his country would ignore any U.N. resolution designed to curb its atomic activities:
"Those who want to prevent ians from obtaining their right, should know that we do not give a damn about such resolutions," he told a rally in northwest .
The IAEA report also:
Confirmed that had flouted the Security Council's demands.
Confirmed 's claim this month to have enriched uranium with a cascade of 164 centrifuges to the low level needed to fuel nuclear power plants.
Revealed is building two new cascades of 164 centrifuges at its underground enrichment plant.
IAEA inspectors have found no hard proof that has a military nuclear program, but ElBaradei has said he still cannot say for sure that it is not conducting one in secret. News reports have raised questions about ian research on advanced "P-2" centrifuges, documents on how to design an atomic bomb core, and intelligence reports of links between uranium ore processing, high-explosives tests and a missile warhead design.
The U.N.'s credibility is again at stake. As Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said:
To be credible, the Security Council of course has to act. It cannot have its word and its will simply ignored by a (U.N.) member state.
If China and Russia remain opposed to Security Council action they should be made to publicly vote on a resolution, even if the resolution fails or is vetoed. The world cannot just sit by and simply watch as ian mullahocracy pursues its nuclear ambitions. In order for diplomacy to have a chance of persuading to give up nuclear its ambitions, must pay a price for staying the course. The continuing dithering can only encourage the mullahs.
