Ahmadinejad says West cannot isolate Iran

"Talking about isolating Iran (over its nuclear work) is a psychological war launched by the West … Iran is a unique country … and no country can isolate it," Ahmadinejad told state television.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) passed a resolution on Friday censuring Iran for covertly constructing a second uranium enrichment plant near the holy city of Qom — in addition to its IAEA-monitored one at Natanz — and demanding a construction halt.

Tehran fuelled tension with the West on Sunday by announcing its plan to build 10 more uranium enrichment sites in retaliation for the resolution, backed by Russia and China.

Washington and its European allies fear Iran will use its declared civilian nuclear energy programme to covertly build bombs, not electricity. Tehran says it has no such intention. (Writing by Parisa Hafezi; Editing by Charles Dick)
