No nuclear weapons under Iran’s defence doctrine – Larijani

I'm gonna say this one more time. Not that its gonna make any difference, but I'll feel better.
Iran’s defence doctrine does not provide for the creation of nuclear weapons, the secretary of the Supreme National Security Council, Ali Larijani, said on Monday.

“If they [the West] continue to pressure Iran over its peaceful nuclear activities we have no other choice but to follow parliament's order and review our membership of the NPT [Non-Proliferation Treaty],” Larijani said.

Asked if Tehran may change the direction of its nuclear programme if Iran’s opponents persist, Larijani said his country will continue its civilian nuclear programme because the creation of nuclear weapons is not allowed by in the national defence doctrine.

However he warned that if the West continues the same policy, this would harm the NPT.

Per the NPT:
"Non-nuclear-weapon States Parties undertake not to acquire or produce nuclear weapons or nuclear explosive devices."

Iran claims they are adhering to the NPT so they have every right to produce, even on an industrial scale, peaceful nuclear materials.

Will Iran eventually produce nuclear weapons? Most likely. Sooner or later the Swiss will have them.

The US has ignored the NPT. Read it.
Cuba, Israel, India, and Pakistan were the only states that were not members of the NPT.

With decent diplomacy, its possible these countries could have been brought around, but now only Cuba, among this group, has no nuclear weapons. We're moving into a nuclear age and there isn't much anyone can do to stop it. For that we can be eternally, possibly literally, grateful to the idiot-in-chief.
