Tehran, Iran, Sep. 04 – Iran suggested on Monday that the United Nations headquarters be relocated from New York to a country other than the United States.

“The U.S. tries to pressure Iran in any way possible. We are convinced that considerations should be made regarding the United Nations which is based in this country”, government spokesman Gholam-Hossein Elham told reporters during his weekly press conference.

“Either the UN must be relocated from the U.S. and set up in a different country or the U.S.’s provisions in this regard must be limited so that the UN plays a more serious role”, Elham said.

He accused the UN of being an “instrument” in the hands of Washington.

UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan was in Tehran over the weekend and unsuccessfully tried to talk the theocratic government into cooperating with the demands of the UN Security Council.

The Security Council adopted Resolution 1696 on July 31 demanding that Tehran suspend all its uranium enrichment activities by August 31 or face the threat of sanctions.

Tehran missed the deadline and has consistently vowed never to abandon uranium enrichment.

The chief of the UN nuclear watchdog Mohammad ElBaradei reported last week that Tehran had not suspended its uranium enrichment activities and had blocked IAEA inspectors from inspecting its nuclear facilities.
