Iran rejects U.N. Security Council sanctions against North Korea

From International Herald Tribune 

TEHRAN, Iran Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said he rejects U.N. Security Council sanctions against North Korea for conducting a nuclear weapons test, and he accused the United States of using the council as a “weapon to impose its hegemony.”

Ahmadinejad also defiantly rejected as “illegal” a Security Council demand that Tehran suspend its own uranium enrichment activities and said Tehran will continue its nuclear activities without any fear.

“Some Western countries have turned the U.N. Security Council into a weapon to impose their hegemony and issue resolutions against countries that oppose them,” Ahmadinejad was quoted by the state-run television as saying Monday.

I would bet that Hugo Chavez and Bashir Assad will be next in rejecting the sanctions…  But then if no one is enforceing them are they really sanctions?
