While US politicians continue to capitalize on Iran’s exaggerated nuclear threat for domestic political gains, the US State Department set the record straight on Iran’s nuclear program. It said, “It is assessed that Iran is not pursuing a nuclear weapons program at this time.”
Axar.az reports the Pentagon assessment came in a report dubbed “Strategy for Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction,” which also addressed other countries possessing nuclear programs.
The report is the latest confirmation that Iran’s nuclear program is peaceful and does not pose any threats to international security despite allegations to the contrary.
Despite the peaceful nature of its nuclear program, Iran has extensively cooperated with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to allay concerns over its nuclear activities. Recently, the top nuclear official of Iran has said that the country is under international scrutiny more than any other country in the world.
Mohammad Eslami, head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization (AEOI), said on Wednesday that it is not reasonable for Iran to be inspected 10 times more than other countries while the size of Iran’s nuclear facilities is about 2% of the world’s nuclear facilities.
