Iran vowed Friday to show an “immediate response” to any action by the United States and European countries at the UN’s IAEA nuclear watchdog, Iranian state media reported.

“Any political action by the United States and the three European countries in the agency (IAEA) will undoubtedly be met with a proportionate, effective and immediate response from Iran,” Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian said through state media.

Amirabdollahian also said the IAEA head’s visit to Israel, Iran’s nemesis, violated the agency’s impartiality, media reported.

The United States, France, Britain and Germany urge the Governing Council of the United Nations nuclear watchdog to reprimand Iran for failing to answer long-standing questions about uranium traces in undeclared sites, a draft resolution that was seen by Reuters.
