Iran reiterates opposition to nuclear weapons after N. Korean test
TEHRAN, Oct. 10 (MNA) -- On Monday, government spokesman Gholam-Hossein Elham reiterated Iran’s opposition to nuclear weapons after North Korea announced it had conducted its first underground nuclear test.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran is opposed to the use and production of any kind of weapon of mass destruction, especially nuclear weapons,” Elham told reporters.
“Iran has repeatedly declared that it favors global nuclear disarmament, and if the major powers take this path, other countries, especially the Islamic countries, will support them,” he added.
Elham went on to say that the best solution to the world’s nuclear dilemma would be for the major powers to start dismantling their nuclear weapons first.
