Iran to secede from IAEA if West keeps threatening

TEHRAN, April 30 (Itar-Tass) -- Tehran will respond to further threats with secession from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Iranian Supreme National Security Council Secretary Ali Larijani said on Sunday.

“If the West keeps threatening Iran, we will secede from the IAEA. Let them know that we will do that if the threats go on,” he said. “The ball is on the side of the West. They will make a decision, which will determine our reaction.”

The high-ranking official reaffirmed that Iran would not resume the uranium enrichment moratorium. “Don’t tell us about the moratorium, we rule it out,” he said.
