Iran calls for global nuclear disarmament

FNA- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif warned against the threats posed by atomic weapons, and called for nuclear disarmament of all the world countries.

“The time is now ripe for destroying the nuclear bombs of those countries possessing such weapons instead of accepting others to the nuclear club,” Zarif told reporters on Sunday night.

The Iranian foreign minister said that nuclear weapons will not bring about security neither for Iran nor for any other country.

Asked about US President Donald Trump’s threats against Iran, Zarif said Iran will not be affected by coercion, rather it well responds to respect.

“Everybody tested us for many years, all threats and coercions were imposed on us,” the Iranian foreign minister said.

He went on to say that when the so-called crippling sanctions were imposed on Iran, the country had less than 2,000 centrifuges, but when the US came to the negotiating table, Iran had 20,000 centrifuges.

“The NPT non-member states talk about Iran’s nuclear threat while they themselves are the biggest threat to international community,” Zarif added.

He reiterated that every mechanism is already in place to ensure the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program.

In relevant remarks on Sunday, Zarif called for collective efforts by the world countries to overcome security concerns and confront the terrorist groups.

“In a world where security actors have multiplied, no single power, however disproportionately powerful or even a concert of major powers can address global or regional challenges by excluding or blaming others,” Zarif said, addressing Munich Security Conference in Germany.
