Iran asks Pakistan to clarify reported Musharraf's comments
font size    

Iran asked Pakistan on Sunday to clarify a media report that President Pervez Musharraf said Tehran was intended to build nuclear weapons, the official IRNA news agency reported.

"President Musharraf knows well that the Islamic Republic does not seek nuclear weapons. We hope Pakistanis will clarify that the report has been distorted," Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi said.

In an interview with the German magazine Der Spiegel published on Saturday, Musharraf was quoted as saying Iran was "very anxious to have the bomb."

The United States has accused Iran of developing nuclear weapons, a charge rejected by Tehran.

Iran insists that its nuclear program is for civilian use only and that it will never give up its legitimate right to developing peaceful nuclear technology.

Iran has suspended uranium enrichment activities, which the West fears could be used to make nuclear weapons, since last November to pave the way for talks with the European Union on the future of its disputed nuclear program.
