Iran has joined 'nuclear club' : Ahmadinejad

Written by: Staff

Moscow, May 5 (UNI) Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad today said Iran had become a member of the world's ''nuclear club.'' ''Iran, relying on the efforts of its younger generation and scientists, has succeeded in advancing the nuclear fuel cycle and joining the group of nuclear states,'' Mr Ahmadinejad said in his remark at the summit of the Organisation for the Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan.

''We are interested in continuing our work on the basis of international principles and laws and also under IAEA control until we achieve the production of industrial nuclear fuel for our nuclear power stations,'' Interfax news agency quoted the Iranian President as saying.

He was sure that, inspite of the development, a US military operation will not be launched against Iran.

''I don't think such a threat exists,'' he said a press conference.

''Iran is an advocate of peace. We believe that peace and stable security should be based only on morality and justice,'' Mr Ahmadinejad noted.
