Iran said the United States, Britain, France and Germany should apologize to the country’s leaders and scientists for damaging their reputations through United Nations Security Council sanctions resolutions against the country’s nuclear program and said it might seek compensation and pursue unspecified legal actions.

In a 20-page letter to Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, Iran’s foreign minister, Manouchehr Mottaki, above, challenged the most recent of three sanctions resolutions, adopted March 3, and said that people identified as subject to the trade, travel and financial sanctions included “national heroes of Iran.” The letter also reiterated Iran’s refusal to heed the Council’s demand for a suspension of uranium enrichment that Iran says is for peaceful purposes but the West argues is for building a bomb.
