Iran Responds To Netanyahu Speech: Nuke Program Just For Energy

Breitbart News: Following Netanyahu’s address, the Iranian delegation exercised its right of reply and asserted Iran’s “inalienable right” to develop its nuclear “energy” program. It stated that Iran “strongly reject[ed]” nuclear weapons for “any nation” and supported “genuine non-proliferation concerns,” and citing alleged “Islamic teachings” that “advise” Muslims not to pursue nuclear weapons but to “abolish them all.”Against the concerns of “some” other nations, the Iranian delegation said, it was committed to “meaningful, time-bound, and results-oriented” negotiations regarding its nuclear program and the removal of sanctions. “Other parties also need to adopt the same approach,” the Iranian delegation said, citing the “current, positive atmosphere” that had emerged, contrasting it to Netanyahu’s “extremely inflammatory” speech.Accusing Netanyahu of “abusing” the UN, the Iranian representative suggested that Israel apply for an international award for violence, particularly against its neighbors and the Palestinians, and warned that “the Israeli Prime Minister had better not even think about attacking Iran, let alone planning for that,” stating that Iran was prepared to defend itself. The General Assembly was silent in response.
