Khatami: Iran not to develop nuclear weapons
Iranian President Mohammad Khatami said Friday his country would not develop a nuclear weapon and would continue to cooperate with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
"The issue of making a nuclear bomb is excluded," he told a press conference on the sidelines of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) in Malaysia.
The Iranian leader said the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) demands were unfair but "we are continuing our cooperation with the IAEA".
"We have no major problem in principle but we insist on our right since we have no intention to build nuclear weapons."
"Because of our religious principles, our ideological principles and our dedication to dialogue among civilisations, we are totally against the proliferation of nuclear weapons."
"We never said we would not sign the protocol and cooperate with IAEA." (Albawaba.com)
