Iran says it will review relations with the United Nations' nuclear watchdog: the International Atomic Energy Agency. This comes a day after the UN Security Council approved a fourth round of sanctions against Tehran over its disputed nuclear program.

Iranian lawmaker Mohammad Karim Abedi says the UN Security Council resolution "lacks any legal and political value." Iranian government officials say the new sanctions will do little more than harden the country's resolve to move ahead with its nuclear programme.
