Jalili reaffirms Iranian commitment to disarmament

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, May 4, IRNA -- Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili on Tuesday reaffirmed Iranian commitment to Non-Proliferation Treaty and disarmament.

Addressing a group of university students, he said that after the world war II, a new world order emerged based on military and nuclear capability.

He said that the big powers with resort to military might or their nuclear weapons tried to dominate world nations.

"They do not hesitate to get rid of their opponents through various scenarios."

He said they have changed their strategy to attain their sinister goals under the guise of soft warfare.

Those who possess nuclear weapons attempted to level accusations against Iran which merely seeks to make use of nuclear energy for civilian purpose, he said.

“We should not be intimidated by hue and cry created by big powers,” he said.

He said that the countries possessing thousands of warheads and still continue with proliferation of nuclear weapons do not let Iran produce some centrifuges.

They use these nuclear warheads to kill the humanity but introduce themselves as true advocates of peace, Jalili said.

He said that the Zionist regime has some 250 nuclear warheads, but regretfully, no one puts finger on it, he said.
