Our nuclear programmes are completely transparent. But we are ready to show greater transparency and make clear for the whole world that the steps of the Islamic Republic of Iran are completely within international frameworks. The sanctions are unfair, the Iranian people are suffering, and our (nuclear) activities are legal. These sanctions are illegal and only benefit Israel.

Kansas University is reportedly threatening to close a twitter account that is entirely dedicated to pictures of women showing off their bosoms while donning the university's tops.
@Kuboobs, the account, which was launched in 2012 to raise breast cancer awareness and to support the uni's sports teams, called the Kansas Jayhawks, has more than 50,000 followers, Stuff.co.nz reported.
All the pictures posted on the website include just a cleavage and no face.
The warning of a shut down has enraged students and resulted in more pictures of boobs in support.
However, the University bosses are not outraged by the images of boobs but the fact that the account's owners have been selling 'KU Boobs' wristbands via their website, KUboobs.com.
The University is planning to use lawyers in the dispute to protect its trademark 'KU'. (ANI)
