Ahmadinejad: Everyone knows Iran isn’t developing bomb

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Currently on a tour of Latin-American countries, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that “”everyone knows that Iran isn’t trying to develop a bomb” and that Iran will resist Western pressure. “The nuclear question is a political excuse. They all know full well Iran isn’t interested in producing nuclear bombs. We don’t believe in making atom bombs. We believe it is immoral.” Ahmadinejad said. “The problem is not the nuclear issue, the problem is the independence and progress of free peoples,” said Ahmadinejad during a news conference in Ecuador. “The dominant and hegemonic powers will not allow the progress and development of independent nations.”

On Thursday and for the first time, diplomats said that Iran was ready to discuss the West’s allegations that it is trying to acquire nuclear weapons. Until now, Iran dismissed the accusations as baseless.
