The Tehran Times reported this week in a breathless headline that “It’s a big lie that Iran was on verge of building atomic bomb, Iran tells Kerry“. The Tehran Times article shares the response of Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham to claims made earlier this week by US Secretary of State John Kerry that Iran had “come within months of building a nuclear weapon”.
“The U.S. officials are used to make unfounded and exaggerated remarks on Iran’s nuclear program under the pressure of the Zionist lobbies,” Afkham said.
According to Iran’s defense doctrine and fatwa issued by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, the country has never sought atomic bomb and will not, she noted. “
So would everybody please take a chill pill!
Iran deal supporters and anti-Israel types; your efforts at helping Iran gain a nuclear weapon via the Iran deal are for naught, turns out they don’t even want a bomb. And to those of us who opposed the Iran deal thinking it would pave the way for an Iranian atomic bomb, we can all heave a big sigh of relief. After all, Iran wouldn’t lie about a thing like that, right?
