Iranian Leader: No One Can Stop Us From Having A Nuclear Bomb; Direct Talks If U.S. Stops Bullying
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei says Iran doesn’t seek nuclear weapons, but no one could stop them if they wanted them.
“We believe nuclear weapons must be abolished and we have no intention of building” such weaponry, Khamenei said in remarks posted on his website, leader.ir. But he added: “If Iran had the intention to build nuclear weapons, the U.S. could in no way stop the Iranian nation.”
He said Tehran would hold talks with the U.S. if Washington respects Iran’s rights instead of resorting to bullying.
