U-S, nonaligned nations at odds over resolution on Iran

U-S, nonaligned nations at odds over resolution on Iran: "

VIENNA, Austria A rift over Iran is holding up a high-level meeting of the U-N atomic watchdog agency in Austria.

The U-S, Europe and its allies are demanding a resolution on Iran that would force the country to freeze all of its uranium enrichment and related activities.

But non-aligned nations want that part excised. They say all countries should have the right enrich uranium as long as it's used for peaceful purposes.

A meeting this morning on the issue has been suspended as delegates try to work out their differences.

Iran says its nuclear activity is only aimed at producing electricity, but the U-S says Tehran is pursuing a nuclear weapon."
