VIENNA, Austria (AP) – Iran on Saturday said it would “immediately” set into motion steps to restart full-scale uranium enrichment and curtail the inspecting powers of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Javed Vaeidi, the deputy head of Iran’s powerful Security Council, was reacting to his country’s referral to the U.N. Security Council over suspicions it might be seeking nuclear arms. He spoke just minutes after the International Atomic Energy Agency’s 35-nation board voted for referral.
