European states call for stiffer sanctions against Iran following IAEA report | guardian.co.uk

European states have called for further sanctions on Iran in the wake of a UN report that Tehran had worked on developing nuclear weapons, but Iran denounced the report as fabricated and said it would not compromise on its nuclear programme.

France took the lead in ratcheting up pressure, calling for a meeting of the security council; the foreign minister, Alain Juppé, said sanctions against Tehran should be raised to an “unprecedented scale” if Iran fails to co-operate with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) investigations into past work on designing a nuclear warhead.
