NIE does not assume Iran intends to acquire nuclear weapons: report

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Dec 4, IRNA
Sixteen US security foundations, in a report on Monday said, they do not "assume that Iran intends to acquire nuclear weapons."

Such a move can be considered as a necessary and positive step in Tehran-Washington relations, but undoubtedly is not sufficient.

A report of the US National Intelligence Estimate (NIE), comprising 16 security agencies, said, "Iran had put its bid to build a nuclear bomb on hold in 2003" in order to prevent further humiliation of officials of the Bush administration.

These assertions were made while International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) had confirmed that the Islamic Republic of Iran has never had such a program. Proposition of such claims are made by certain groups with specific political objectives which from the very beginning their falsehood were revealed.

The US should apologize to Iran and by abandoning its mischiefs against Iranians try to make up for its serious mistakes.

The US administration should know that only admitting a mistake is not enough.
