Iran threatens to resume uranium enrichment

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran will resume uranium enrichment and
stop allowing U.N. snap checks of its atomic facilities if
moves to report it to the Security Council are not reversed, a
foreign ministry statement said on Monday.

The statement, read out on state television, said Iran
"would cancel all its voluntary and temporary measures
including implementation of the Additional Protocol."

The Additional Protocol to the nuclear Non-Proliferation
Treaty allows snap checks of atomic facilities.
