TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Iran's top leader warns his country will pursue nuclear activities outside international regulations if the UN Security Council insists it stop uranium enrichment.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei says that until now all Iranian nuclear activity have been within the rules imposed by the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. However, Khamenei said Wednesday that if the UN takes illegal actions then, in his words, "we too can take illegal actions and will do so."

Khamenei did not elaborate what actions Iran may take.

The Security Council, pushed by the United States, is considering toughening sanctions against Iran for its refusal to halt nuclear enrichment
