Russia, US, France rap Iran's nuclear 'escalation'

clipped from
World powers send letter to UN nuclear watchdog in response to Tehran's launch last week of higher-grade enrichment. Iranian President Ahmadinejad says any country which tries to impose new sanctions on Islamic Republic will regret its actions

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
said on Tuesday talks were still going on over a proposed nuclear fuel swap and any country which tried to impose new sanctions on Iran
would regret its actions.

He was speaking a day after US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sought backing from oil giant Saudi Arabia to help win Chinese support for additional sanctions.

Meanwhile, a joint US-Russian-French letter obtained by Reuters on Tuesday said that "Iran's move to escalate uranium enrichment is unjustified because a draft nuclear deal it has snubbed lists guarantees for Tehran's benefit."
