Iran "can but won't build nuclear bomb"

Not policy to go that route, says member of parliament

AP — Iran has the knowledge and scientific capability to produce nuclear weapons but will never do so, a prominent lawmaker has said.

Gholamreza Mesbahi Moghadam is a parliamentarian not a government official and his views do not represent the Iranian government's policy. It however is the first time that such a prominent Iranian politician has publicly stated that Iran has the technological capability to produce a nuclear weapon.

His assertion published on parliament's website late Friday suggests that Iran is trying to show unity in its political establishment around its often repeated claims that it seeks world-class technological advances including nuclear expertise, but does not want to develop atomic arms as the U.S. and its allies claim.

The statement comes before planned talks beginning next week with the U.S. and other world powers over Tehran's nuclear ambitions.

Moghadam said Iran can easily produce the highly enriched uranium that is used to build atomic bombs, but that it is not Tehran's policy to go that route.

"Iran has the scientific and technological capability to produce (a) nuclear weapon, but will never choose this path," he said in remarks carried by the parliamentary website >>>



he is too shy to say that he cant and is not allowed.

Global Air/Naval Inspections

When the '(Israel Worshippers) Zionists Occuppiers' have the bomb, why not any other '----ists?' And how in the world do the so called enslved! Iranian people expect the '(in)sane world' to help them where their neighboring countries' people have been enslaved by the same (in)sane world under the neocons/warmongers of its own schemes?

Global inspections of air/naval is a must with no exceptions!

Air/naval inspection

Messianic Islamist Rapists are after the bomb. Before it is too late, the sane world has to help the enslaved Iranian people to retire these warmongers.

Airtight sanctions including air/naval cargo inspection is a must!
