Rouhani alleges fact that Iran does not seek to get nuclear weapons
Iran does not strive to get nuclear weapons, so it permits monitoring over its nuclear facilities, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told a news conference dedicated to the results of the trip to the high-level week of the UN General Assembly.
"Those who want to obtain nuclear weapons decrease the opportunity for monitoring them. We are not doing it," the Iranian president said, according to the Iranian government’s press service.
He added that "the third stage to reduce Tehran’s obligations under the nuclear deal has great importance, and now the Iranian side will use more advanced centrifuges to enrich uranium." "However, we resolutely deny [the accusations of] striving to create nuclear weapons," TASS cited Rouhani as saying.
