Tehran, Iran, Nov. 26 – A semi-official daily claimed on Saturday that the Islamic Republic had successfully forced the European Union to retreat in its attempts to refer Tehran’s suspected nuclear weapons program to the United Nations Security Council.

The hard-line daily Kayhan, which reflects the views of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, wrote that Western governments had initially threatened Iran that the situation would only get worse if it did not adhere to resolutions of the International Atomic Energy Agency. By the end of Thursday’s deliberation, however, no member of the UN nuclear watchdog’s board of governors was willing to motion a resolution against Tehran.

“Despite threats by Western governments that with Iran’s chosen policies the situation would get worse day by day, it seems that the Islamic Republic’s active diplomacy and its logical cooperation with the IAEA, which led to all outstanding issues to be resolved on the one hand and the failure by the West to pressure Iran into submission on the other, forced the West to reach the conclusion that it can no longer block Iran’s [nuclear”> file from going back to normal”, the daily said.

It added that “one or two Western countries” unsuccessfully attempted to create “commotion” over Tehran’s nuclear file during the meeting.
