Algiers, March 28, IRNA
Former Iranian president and head of the International Institute for Dialogue among Cultures and Civilizations, Mohammad Khatami declared on Wednesday that since the beginning of its nuclear program, Iran has never intended to produced nuclear weapons or bombs.
The remark was part of a speech delivered at the conference on dialogue among civilizations at Egypt's Iskandariyah Library.
"Iran's nuclear issue aims to provide a substitute energy source for oil to respond to the demands of future generations," he noted.
Turning to Iran's attempts to resume full diplomatic relations with Egypt, he said that many efforts have been made in recent years to expand bilateral ties in technological and economic fields.
Khatami pointed to the instability resulting from wars and campaign against terrorism as the major problems of the today's world, urging that such a problem should only be solved through talks among countries.
