'Intl. law forbids attack on nuclear sites'

'Intl. law forbids attack on nuclear sites' 18 Aug 2010 Iran's envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency says attacking or threatening to attack nuclear facilities is in violation of the UN charter. "According to Resolution 533 of the IAEA, attacking or threatening to attack operational or under-construction nuclear facilities is a blatant violation of the UN charter, IAEA statute and international regulations," Ali Asghar Soltanieh said Wednesday. "The remarks made by the former US envoy to the UN show Washington's warmongering and aggressive attitude as well as its violation of international laws," Soltanieh said in reference to John Bolton hinting that Israel has only one week to attack the Bushehr power plant.
