Iran's Khamenei Won't Agree to Freeze Sensitive Nuclear Work

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Tuesday ruled out freezing sensitive nuclear work in the country for a long time. According to state TV, he also said sanctions imposed on the country should be lifted as soon it reaches a final deal with major powers. The six powers- Britain, France, Germany, China, Russia and the United States - want Iran to commit to a verifiable halt of at least 10 years on sensitive nuclear development work. The call is part of a landmark atomic deal they aim to reach by June 30th. The International Atomic Energy Agency has been trying to investigate Western allegations that Iran has been working on designing a nuclear warhead.
