The Iranian parliment is drafting a bill to force the government to resume uranium enrichment, inspite of the IAEA's objections. Iran which insists
it's nuclear ambitions are for peaceful purposes could face international sanctions by the UN following a scheduled meeting on November 25th to review
The legislation, if approved as expected, would fuel an international crisis as the UN nuclear watchdog tries to persuade Iran to limit nuclear
activities that Washington says are aimed at producing an atomic bomb.
Iran, which insists its intentions are peaceful, has already rejected a resolution of the International Atomic Energy Agency last month demanding Iran
freeze all uranium enrichment activities by late November.
If Iran fails to meet the demand, the IAEA could refer the situation to the UN Security Council, which could impose sanctions. The IAEA will meet
November 25 to judge Iran's compliance.
