Iran could cancel its agreement with Turkey and Brazil to transfer some of its uranium abroad if the U.N. Security Council approves a new round of sanctions against it, a member of parliament said on Thursday.

Brazil and Turkey brokered a surprise deal this week in which Iran agreed to send some low-enriched uranium abroad in return for fuel rods for a medical research reactor. The first batch is due to arrive in Turkey within a month.
