Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi reiterated that Zionist regime’s nuclear arsenal is the biggest threat for regional and international peace and security.
His remarks came after baseless allegations of the new US President and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a press conference in Washington.
"The remarks included nothing but repeating futile and worthless claims on peaceful Iranian nuclear program. The remarks are being made, whereas the IAEA’s reports have frequently approved peacefulness of Iranian nuclear program. This reality has also been confirmed by various countries across the world.”
He said that there are hundreds of warheads kept in Israeli nuclear arsenals which are the biggest threat to regional and international peace and security.
Qassemi continued that Iran believes that nuclear weapon is religiously forbidden in terms of religious viewpoint and Supreme Leader’s ‘Fatwa’, and that nuclear weapons have no place in Iranian military doctrine.
The Islamic Republic of Iran would press ahead with its peaceful nuclear program under the JCPOA which has been approved by the UN Security Council, Qassemi added.
