Iran calls on UN to give up new resolution
Manouchehr Mottaki sent a message to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Security Council members indicating it would be "unacceptable to repeat mistakes."

"The report by the International Atomic Energy Agency that confirmed the civilian direction of Iran's nuclear program, shows that all earlier adopted Security Council resolutions have no justification from the technical and legal viewpoints. Approval of the resolutions was dictated only by self-interested political goals of certain states," the local TV quoted the message.
