The United Nations Security Council will draft a response to International Atomic Energy Agency's demand to the former that it deal with Iran's refusal to halt nuclear activities, US Ambassador John Bolton said.

Bolton said that a letter was being drafted and would be discussed by the 15 council members before being sent to IAEA's director Mohamed ElBaradei in Vienna.

IAEA's board of governors had last week voted to refer Iran's possible plans to produce nuclear weapons to the UNSC with the provision that no action be taken until March 6, when the IAEA reports on the latest developments in Iran.

Tehran, on Monday, had asked IAEA's surveillance cameras to be removed from its nuclear facilities after announcing the resumption of uranium enrichment activities.
