Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Tuesday that now it was too late to stop Tehran's nuclear program as Western powers are launching new efforts to impose new UN sanctions against the country.
"It is too late to stop Iran's progress since we have advanced to a new stage," the Iranian president told a news conference.
"It is too late to push us back," Ahmadinejad said. "Our nuclear activities are legal and within the framework of the International Atomic Energy Agency."
The U.S. State Department said on Friday that Washington will seek for new sanctions by the UN Security Council against Iran as Tehran refused to give up its nuclear program in the latest talks with officials of the European Union.
The United States and its Western allies have accused Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons under the cover of its civilian nuclear programs.
