Claims of US Intelligence Agencies

Monday, December 10, 2007

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hosseini has rejected claims by US intelligence agencies regarding Iran's nuclear program before 2003.

"The speculations in the assessment of the National Intelligence Estimate, released Monday, claiming that Iran pursued a military nuclear program prior to 2003 was an incorrect and baseless assumption," Mohammad-Ali Hosseini said.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran has never had a non-peaceful military program at any stage that might require a decision to suspend. Reports by the International Atomic Energy Agency prove that Iran has had no diversion in its peaceful nuclear activities, neither in the past nor at the present," he added.

Hosseini stated that resistance of the Iranian nation and officials made the opposite party admit certain realities and facts about Iran's peaceful nuclear case, which is regarded as an 'important victory'.

The spokesman noted that the NIE report revealed that the US government told lies to its nation and the international community in recent years and distorted realities regarding Iran's peaceful program.

This has disgraced the US in the global public opinion, Hosseini said, noting Washington sent Iran's nuclear dossier to the UN Security Council based on such distortions.

He observed that the US President George W. Bush still holds firm on his policy toward the Islamic Republic in disregard of the NIE analysis.
