Iranian ambassador to Russia Gholamreza Shafee has called "fake" the words of American representatives that Russia helps Iran create nuclear weapons.
"Declarations by high-ranking American officials that Russia helps Iran create nuclear weapons are frequent. Experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency have often given the lie to such accusations," the Iranian ambassador said in Vladikavkaz (capital of the constituent republic North Ossetia-Alania) on Thursday.
Gholamreza Shafee drew the attention to the ambiguity of the American position as regards many international problems. "It is the United States which in its time gave Saddam Hussein contemporary weapons, promoting Iraq's further attack on Iran (1980-1988). Now the United States has attacked Iraq, groundlessly accusing it of having to do with the manufacture of chemical and bacteriological weapons," he said.
"The United States obviously believes that time has come to 'put things in order' in Iran. But this line of aggressive behavior has no prospect for any state, including the United States," stressed the Iranian ambassador.
