DUBAI (Reuters) - If Iran’s nuclear file is sent to the United Nations Security Council, then Iran will withdraw from the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Monday, according to the official IRNA news agency.

“If the Europeans continue their improper behaviour or send Iran’s file to the Security Council, we will withdraw from the NPT,” IRNA quoted Zarif as saying.
