Iran condemned the United States' latest nuclear test on Saturday, saying it reflected “inattention to full disarmament which is a deep-seated demand of international public opinion.”
Mehmanparast said Iran was “one of the victims of weapons of mass destruction” during its war with Iraq and as such “will pursue the supreme leader's fatwa regarding the prohibition of production, storage or use of such weapons until it has been fully realized.”
The United States is leading an international coalition to impose harsh sanctions on Iran to get the country to abandon its alleged nuclear weapons program.
Iran says its program is for peaceful purposes only, such as energy production and medical research.
