The article focuses on the refusal of Iran to address the approaching deadline imposed by the United Nations (UN) Security Council to cease uranium enrichment. The UN has indicated that it may resort to economic sanctions if the Islamic republic fails to comply. However, Tehran has continued to argue that it has the right to pursue enrichment for civilian purposes and has inaugurated a new stage in the Arak heavy water reactor project that will produce plutonium for developing nuclear warheads.
