Mr.Ahmadinejad's sayings on Nuclear Weapons
“People who say Iran is moving toward the production of nuclear weapons are not Western scientists; they are Western politicians,” Ahmadinejad said in interview with Euronews TV channel.
The president said Iran's production of 20-percent enriched uranium is for purely peaceful purposes and is used to produce radio medicines.
“Twenty percent is good for nothing else...it can only be used for medicine and agriculture,” he stated.
“Iran is among the few countries in the world that all their [nuclear] activities are under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency, and when it has declared that it is not after producing nuclear weapons, it really does not plan to do so,” the Iranian president stated.
“We believe if someone is after nuclear weapons at this era is not right in the head,” Ahmadinejad pointed out.
The president further scoffed at attempts by some Western powers to expand their nuclear arsenals.
Ahmadinejad argued that nuclear arms not only are against humanity but also endanger those countries who wield such weapons more than other nations.
“The nuclear bomb is no use anymore,” he added, recalling Israel's failure to achieve its goals in the 22-day Gaza war in December 2008-January 2009, and its heavy losses in the 2006 war against Lebanon despite the nuclear warheads Tel Aviv possesses.
Nuclear bombs did not save the former Soviet Union from collapse, Ahmadinejad said and described nuclear weapons as a factor that would give its wielder the upper hand in political equations more than 60 years ago.
He stressed that nuclear weapons are of no use today, noting, “Today, thoughts and humans are the factors that can affect the global equations."
“We believe that no one will be able to use the nuclear bomb in the future. It is finished,” he concluded.
