Iran will limit UN nuclear inspections in retaliation for being reported to the UN Security Council over its disputed atomic programme, a senior Iranian official said on Saturday.

Iran will "suspend the voluntary implementation of the Additional Protocol which has been for three years implemented as if it has been ratified," Javad Vaidi told reporters.

Vaidi heads the Iranian delegation to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) meeting that took its decision earlier on Saturday.
