TEHERAN - Iran, itself accused by the West of seeking to make atomic bombs, said on Tuesday it was against any country possessing such weapons after North Korea announced it had conducted its first underground nuclear test.
As world powers condemned North Korea’s announcement on Monday, Washington called for harsh U.N. sanctions that could further isolate the communist state.
“Iran is against the use and production of nuclear weapons. No country is competent to use nuclear weapons,” government spokesman Gholamhossein Elham told a weekly news conference, when asked about North Korea’s nuclear test.
Perhaps Iran sees the similarities between how North Korea ended up with nukes and the path that they're on, and thinking that if they placate the West enough, we'll just talk and treaty and sanction ourselves into oblivion and in the end Iran will end up just like North Korea...
A nuclear superpower.
