Iran not after nuclear weapons: Ayatollah Khamenei

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has reiterated Iran’s opposition to the possession of nuclear weapons based on the beliefs of the Iranian nation.

“We are against nuclear weapons not because of the US or other countries, but because of our beliefs,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in a Tuesday meeting with the commanders and officials of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).

“And when we say no one should have nuclear weapons, we definitely do not pursue it ourselves either,” the Leader said, noting that Iran’s opponents pursue other motives in the dispute over Iran’s nuclear energy program.
