“What we do know about Iran’s ballistic missiles program is they have been working very hard with North Korea and others to extend their range and accuracy, and that’s a concern,” the American ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton, told The New York Sun.
The United States, France and Britain say that if Tehran does not meet the deadline, they will make the enrichment demand and other conditions compulsory and they want punitive measures to stay on the table.
But Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said no Security Council resolution could make Iran give up its nuclear program.
The Iranian nation won't give a damn about such useless resolutions," Ahmadinejad told thousands of people in Khorramdareh in northwestern Iran.
The Security Council is awaiting the arrival of a report by the nuclear watchdog chief, Mohamed ElBaradei, which is expected to be critical of Iran. Diplomats at the United Nations said yesterday that the new missile threat could add weight to arguments of European and American officials who are attempting to persuade their colleagues from China and Russia not to veto a resolution that would set in motion punitive measures against Iran’s defiant leaders.
“In order to be credible, the Security Council,of course,has to act,” Rice said The council “is the primary and most important institution for the maintenance of peace and stability and security, and it cannot have its will and its word simply ignored by a member state,” she said, referring to Iran.
