Iran 'treated worse than North Korea'

Iran's top security official yesterday accused international bodies of treating Tehran worse than North Korea and attacked a "fascism" that denied Iran advanced technology.

In a speech reported by Iranian news agencies, Ali Larijani, secretary of the Supreme National Security Council, said North Korea - which claims to have nuclear bombs - had "no problems with the IAEA [International Atomic Energy Agency]", but "with Iran, every day a problem is created".

Mr Larijani also warned the US it was engaged on too many "fronts" to contemplate military action against Iran.

His remarks came after the European Union last week floated the possibility of further talks over Iran's nuclear programme, after the IAEA last month passed a resolution finding Tehran in non-compliance with the nuclear non-proliferation treaty, a step towards referral to the United Nations Security Council.

But Mr Larijani also signalled the door was still open for diplomacy, saying there were "certain articles" Iran could accept in the IAEA resolution. Gareth Smyth, Tehran
