Iran concealed a partially-built second uranium enrichment plant in defiance of calls for transparency over its nuclear plans, US President Barack Obama says.

 

The US, UK and France said the UN had to be given immediate access and urged tough new sanctions, while Russia also said it was "seriously concerned".  Iran told the UN about the plant on Monday, saying it was not operational yet and would provide nuclear energy. 

 

Speaking in New York, Iran's president denied there had been any secrecy.  In an interview with Time magazine, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Iran was working within the framework set out by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the UN watchdog.  Tehran has previously acknowledged it has one enrichment plant, at Natanz.

 

Iran's decision to build a secret facility represented a "direct challenge to the basic compact" of the global non-proliferation regime, US President Barack Obama said, making a statement in Pittsburgh, where he is hosting a G20 summit.  Despite Iran's assertions that the facility was for peaceful purposes, the new plant was "not consistent" with that goal, the US president said.

Whilst he denied any secrecy he didnt actually admit it. The facility has been known about for a while but it just conveniently came up in the conversation at the G meeting.

 

They wont be satisfied until Israel (at the very least) turns Iran into a vast pool of glass because iran isnt going to be told what to do.

Why should Israel call for it, when they are already going about doing things like this?

 

Because Iran officially called for the destruction of Israel. How do you trust anyone like that? And of course, Iran is Islamic.
