Iran: We Will Never Give Up Nuke Program
Iranian First Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri said Sunday his county will never give up it right to a nuclear program, and is willing to take extra steps to show it is a peaceful one.
“Iran is ready to clarify ambiguities in regards to its nuclear program,” Jahangiri told reporters during a meeting with Cuban president Raul Castro, held on the sidelines of the Group-77 plus China Summit in the Bolivian city of Santa Cruz.
The purely-commemorative summit of 135 developing nations, plus China, met to draft a new anti-poverty agenda aimed at implementing new social policies, reports AFP.
Jahangiri added that even though “some countries own nuclear weapons but are signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty or NPT” and “they also never let the IAEA experts visit their nuclear sites,” the International Atomic Energy Agency can supervise Iran’s program.
The two leaders said they share common ground “in regards to world bullies” and underlined the need to expand relations.
Castro added that Washington’s main goal in the Middle East is to influence Iran.
