Ambition Is Always A Character Flaw

For Iran at least. They’re back to threatening the world after their most reliable nuclear fuel partner, Russia, turned a little on them.

Iran’s supreme leader said Wednesday that Tehran will pursue nuclear activities outside international regulations if the U.N. Security Council insists it stop uranium enrichment.

“Until today, what we have done has been in accordance with international regulations,” Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said. “But if they take illegal actions, we too can take illegal actions and will do so.”

As for the Iranian – Russian relationship,

Russia has said plans to supply fuel for Bushehr this month were called off because of Iranian payment delays that prompted Moscow to indefinitely postpone the reactor’s September launch. Russian officials also said that the number of workers at Bushehr had dwindled due to the funding shortage.

Iran angrily denied falling behind in payments and accused Russia of caving in to U.S. pressure to take a tougher line on Tehran.

Iran is looking at an arms export freeze and for the foreign assets of some of those involved with the nuclear program to be frozen.
