Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said that Iran has no intention to make nuclear bombs, local satellite Press TV reported on Monday.

Mottaki said that the UN anti-Iran sanctions had demonstrated the West's logic of coercion, according to the report.

"They (the Westerners) assert that Iran may have the intention to make nuclear weapons, and punished our nation based on the claims" of probability, Mottaki was quoted as saying.

"The Iranian nation does not need atomic bombs," Mottaki said on Sunday, according to the report.

On June 9, the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 1929 to impose the fourth round of sanctions on Iran since 2006, saying Tehran has failed to strictly fulfill its obligations under the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

Tehran has rejected the allegations and reiterated that, as an NPT signatory, Iran has abided by the terms and conditions of the treaty.
