Ali Akbar Salehi, a top Iranian nuclear official said Monday that the country’s decision to build 10 more uranium-enrichment sites is a direct response to last week’s censure by the International Atomic Energy Agency. The facilities will be built inside mountains, the official added, to secure them from military attack.
Iran’s parliament speaker , former nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani, accused Western nations of “haggling,” “lying” and “cheating” during talks over Iran’s nuclear program. Larijani also questioned the usefulness of the IAEA, the U.N. international watchdog agency, and the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which calls for curbing the spread of nuclear weapons but encourages member countries to share peaceful nuclear technology.
