July 30, 2006 -- Iran's Foreign Ministry warned today that Tehran would abandon the international community's package of nuclear incentives if the UN Security Council approves a resolution against Iran.
Hamid Reza Asefi told reporters that if any resolution is issued against Iran tomorrow, the package would be left off the agenda by Iran.
Asefi's comments came in response to a draft UN resolution giving Tehran until August 31 to suspend uranium enrichment or face the threat of international sanctions.
