Iran 'Could Quit Nuclear Treaty'

BBC News:
Iran could abandon the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) if forced to limit nuclear activities, its hardline president says. He said if the rights of the Iranian people were violated, Iran would "revise its policies".

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made the comments in a speech marking the anniversary of the 1979 Islamic revolution.

On 4 February, the IAEA decided to report Iran to the UN Security Council over its disputed nuclear programme.
