Mashad, Khorassan Razavi Prov, March 6, IRNA – All Iranˈs nuclear activities are transparent and peaceful, Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said Wednesday evening.
Talking to reporters, he said since plutonium is directly involved in producing nuclear weapons and all the Westˈs concerns regarding Iranˈs nuclear program is over production of weapons of mass destruction, producing and reprocessing of this substance has no place in Iranˈs nuclear program.
Iran-5+1 Geneva deal has nothing to do with the sanctions imposed on Tehran on the pretext of alleged support for terrorism or violation of human rights, Araqchi reiterated.
He added that 90 percent of anti-Iran sanctions have been imposed on the pretext of the countryˈs peaceful nuclear activities, stressing that all these sanctions are supposed to be lifted at the end of the negotiations.
