Tehran, Iran, Jan. 25 – A senior Iranian official warned Europe on Wednesday that it risked losing its voice on the international stage if Iran’s nuclear case were to be sent to the United Nations Security Council.

Ali Larijani, the Secretary-General of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC), also threatened that the Islamic Republic would resume uranium enrichment and end all cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), if Western governments opted for the Security Council.

Speaking to reporters on his return from a trip to Moscow, Larijani said, “We have prepared scenarios to deal with any harsh actions by the Europeans”.

“If Europe takes such a decision, we will resume our work because referral of Iran’s case to the UN Security Council is a sign of depriving Iran of its rights”, Larijani said.

“The Iranian nation is brave and knows very well how to defend its national interests”, the senior official said.

Larijani warned the West that if Iran was referred to the Security Council, it would begin “phase two” of its “measures”.

Iran had already breached its earlier agreement with Britain, France, and Germany – the EU-3 – by resuming nuclear research and development at its uranium enrichment site in Natanz, as well as uranium conversion at its Uranium Conversion Facility in Isfahan.

Larijani said that Iran would enforce a bill approved by the Majlis, or Parliament, if its case went to the UN.

Majlis on November 22, 2005, adopted an urgency bill which called for an end to all voluntary suspension of measures by the government and cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) if the country’s nuclear dossier was referred to the UN Security Council.
