(www.irna.ir) вЂ" Secretary of Supreme National Security Council Ali Larijani said that Iran is prepared to fully guarantee that it does not intend to produce nuclear weapons.
The statement was made in an interview with the German daily, Suddeutsche Zeitung, which was published on Monday.
Larijani, who attended the 43rd Conference on Security Policy in Munich, added that nuclear weapons are banned by Iran's defensive doctrine and that Iran's nuclear activities are transparent and conducted under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
"I wonder that despite this, an atmosphere of mistrust has been created, in which Iran is accused of attempting to develop nuclear weapons. This is while possession of nuclear weapons by Iran will give rise to rivalry among the neighboring countries, reports Trend.
"We have been charged with efforts to produce nuclear weapons in future, but we can hardly come up with any solution to leave out the possibility of misusing peaceful nuclear technology for military purposes," he added.
Larijani referred to the proposals based on which Iran will be authorized to continue its uranium enrichment up to four percent, adding that though this is unfair, but this is just the primary step.
The SNSC secretary declared that Iran is ready to reach an agreement on the issue, but that the precondition on suspension of enrichment will not be accepted.
"We are concerned about the West's intention to deprive us of our right to access nuclear technology," he added.
Iran's top nuclear negotiator also urged the need for promotion of peace in the Middle East and said that the US seeks to confront terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan, but that neither of the two countries have become more peaceful and the US policy is wrong.
Concerning the Palestine issue, he said that it should be solved through democratic channels.
"Palestine's residents should elect a government and determine their own destiny. This is the stance of Iran's Supreme National Security Council on the issue," he said.
"How can atomic bomb solve the problems between Palestine and Israel? If an atomic bomb is dropped on Israel, all Muslims will die," he said.
