November 9, 2011

Weapon Program: 

  • Nuclear
  • Military

Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said on Tuesday that that Iran has no weapons program and there is no document to prove military dimension for Iranian nuclear program.

He told a western media reporter while arriving in Yerevan, Armenia that the International Atomic Energy Agency director general Yukiya Amano has documented his report on counterfeit evidences at the behest of Washington.

"There is no evidence to prove that Iran has weapons program," Salehi said.

Responding to another media woman about the IAEA imminent report on Iran, he once again indicated that Iranian nuclear program has no military aspect and there is no evidence to prove the contrary.

Salehi said that the US and the western governments have attempted to put pressure on Iran without any legal proof that Iran has had weapons program.
