Iran issues warning against confrontation over its nuclear policy

Iran has issued a warning to Western countries about starting a confrontation over its nuclear program, Agence-France Presse reported today.

Many in the West believe that Iran is trying to create a nuclear weapon, and French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said on Sunday that a war with Iran was possible.

Reza Aghazadeh, Iran’s vice president and head of the country’s atomic agency, told an International Atomic Energy Agency conference in Vienna that “some Western countries” had “proved that you cannot tolerate the addition of independent states and developing countries to the ongoing movement of those seeking to achieve ownership of modern technology.”

As a further warning, Aghazadeh went on to add: “The great nation of Iran has recorded your discriminatory behavior and performance in its memory and will not forget.”
