Iran | Zarif: Iran has nothing to hide, not seeking nuclear weapons


Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that Iran has nothing to hide regarding its peaceful nuclear program and that it is not seeking nuclear weapons.

In an interview with Iran Press, Zarif referred to Israel's nuclear arsenal, saying that the silence of the world leaders on Israel's nuclear arsenal amounts to hypocrisy.

He referred to the IAEA reports on Iran saying that the International Atomic Energy Agency has leaked the information that was supposed to be confidential.

"Now Mr. Grossy, the director-general of the IAEA, requested to come here so that we could have a smooth transition. We have nothing to hide. Iran does not seek to develop nuclear weapons. The decision is based on sound geopolitical facts and moral grounds and the decision stands without any if so/but," Zarif said.
