November 9, 2011
Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said on Tuesday that Iran is on the
frontline of campaign against manufacturers of nuclear weapons.
He made the remarks in a press Conference with his Armenian counterpart Edward Nalbandian in Yerevan, Armenia.
“Iran is against manufacturing and applying any nuclear weapons and does its utmost to disclose any plan in the world to manufacture weapons of mass destruction,” Salehi said.
He derided the western governments for their allegation that Iran is endeavoring to acquire nuclear weapons and said that Iran’s nuclear program is transparent, citing the International Atomic Energy Agency's 24-hour monitor of Iranian nuclear sites by satellite cameras installed over them.
Salehi said that the western governments efforts to issue a resolution in International Atomic Energy Agency against Iran is a sign of desperation to find any documents proving Iran’s involvement in manufacturing nuclear weapons.
He started tour of Armenia Monday night for two days working visit to that country at the invitation of his Armenian counterpart.
