Iran to hide nuclear program if sanctions imposed

Iran said Monday it would conceal its nuclear program and cut ties with the U.N. nuclear agency if targeted with sanctions.

Chief Iranian nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani said that his country "cannot be expected to act transparently" if attacked militarily.

Larijani suggested that Iran might quit the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty if the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) imposed sanctions on his country.

IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei admits they have no hard evidence of any Iranian muclear arms program, which makes it difficult to justify any international punitive action against Iran.
