(AP) Iran's parliament speaker is warning that too much pressure from the West during nuclear talks could force Iranian lawmakers to call for stepping up atomic work.

The message from Ali Larijani follows appeals by some members of the U.S. Congress to tighten sanctions despite nuclear negotiations that began last week. It also appears to address concerns by hard-liners over possible Iranian concessions in efforts to ease sanctions by the U.S. and its allies

Larijani said Sunday parliament could have a voice in the "amount and diversity" of nuclear activities, suggesting it could urge expanded nuclear activity if the West shows a "double-standard and unjustifiable behavior." He gave no further details in comments reported by the semiofficial Fars news agency.

Talks have focused on one key Iranian activity, uranium enrichment.
