Iran's Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi says the International Atomic Energy Agency is free to reveal the alleged evidence it claims to have against Iran as “their documents are baseless.”

In a joint press conference with visiting Burundian Foreign Minister Augustin Nsanze on Saturday, Salehi said Iran has given a 117-page response to such allegations before and there is no new aspect to these claims.

He added that Iran has no problem with the publication of such documents and believes that they are baseless and non-authentic.

Salehi further said that the IAEA approach to Iran’s nuclear program has become increasingly political as the Agency is under tremendous pressure from the United States.

“If the IAEA is impartial it should resist the pressures exerted by certain countries and do its job professionally,” Mehr News Agency quoted Iran’s top diplomat as saying.

Iran has constantly rejected repeated allegations by the United States, the Israeli regime and their European allies that it is pursuing a covert military nuclear program.

The country insists that as a signatory to the NPT and a member of the IAEA it has every right to develop and acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes such as electricity generation and medical research.

In addition, the IAEA has conducted numerous inspections of Iran’s nuclear facilities but has never found any evidence indicating that Iran’s civilian nuclear program has been diverted towards military purposes.

    At least Iran has had about thirty years to prepare for the inevitable: conquest for resources by the country that possesses the world’s most WMD, violating its Constitution plus all international laws including those on human rights. Behind the screen Iran might have received assistance from countries that can expect a similar fate, considering the example in utter lawlessness, that treaties now not even have the value of the paper they’re written on.

    if Iran doesnt need nukes then i dont know who does, given the amount of attacks that it has suffered from the u.s and its rogue allies. i think we should be most concerned about the kinds of weapons the u.s has at its disposal. the u.s is the most likely country to use wmd on some innocent people, not to mention that the u.s has been massacring innocent people for at least the past 60yrs.

      After the USA had destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki with nuclear bombs and other countries (UK,France, USSR etc.) had acquired those weapons, it became clear they couldn’t be used in wars. That resulted in the M.A.D. (Mutually Assured Destruction) doctrine: an attack was to be followed by retaliation from which no recovery was possible. The USA however tried to circumvent that (Reagan’s star wars and the present anti-missile programs).

      Fact is that a French president, general de Gaulle, once remarked “No country without an atom bomb could properly consider itself independent.” (New York Times Magazine (12 May 1968)).

      Any country with resources coveted by NATO countries would be irresponsible to its citizens, when not having a nuclear deterrent – see what happened to Iraq, Libya.
