Tehran, Feb 25:  A deputy Iranian foreign minister said today Tehran was ready for any scenario in its nuclear row with the West ''even for war'' and further UN steps would not stop the country's atomic work, Iran's student news agency ISNA reported.

''We have prepared ourselves for any situation, even for war,'' Manouchehr Mohammadi, one of the deputies to the foreign minister, was quoted as saying at a conference in the central city of Isfahan.

''If they issue a second resolution, Iran will not respond and will continue its nuclear activities,'' he said. The United Nations slapped sanctions on Iran in December over its nuclear work, which the West fears is aimed at building atomic weapons.
