Iran confirmed on Tuesday that it had restarted the enrichment of uranium and vowed it would not back down on its nuclear fuel research activities.

"In line with the parliament law, the president ordered work to resume (at the Natanz enrichment facility)," said Javad Vaidi, a member of Iran's Supreme National Security Council.

He said it was "unacceptable" for Iran to halt its research on enrichment, a process which makes reactor fuel but can be extended to make the core of a nuclear weapon.
