Iran: No plan to produce nuclear arms
Iran's Foreign Ministry has dismissed concerns about how much fissile material it has by saying Tehran does not plan to develop a nuclear weapon. According to the AP, Foreign Ministry spokesman Hasan Qashqavi's comments Monday come a day after the top U.S. military official said Iran has sufficient material for a nuclear weapon.
"All this talk is baseless," the Iranian official said. "For that to be true, two things would have to happen... first, Iran has to exit the NPT (non-proliferation treaty) and second, it should be proved that Iran is seeking high-enriched uranium," Qashqavi said in Tehran.
Asked about the activities of foreign journalist Roxana Saberi in Iran, he said her journalistic activities were banned in the Islamic Republic since 2007. Her reporter card was sent to the Culture and Islamic Guidance Ministry and she should have not follow any journalistic activities in the country, Qashqavi added. Reports on Sunday claimed the US journalist has been arrested in Iran.
