Iran: Analyst - US unable to prove Iran’s nuclear program not peaceful

Source: IRNA

Kuala Lumpur, Dec 17, IRNA – US writer and analyst Seymour Hersh said Washington had no documents to prove its claim that Iran’s nuclear program was not for peaceful purposes.

He said in an article on Saturday that the White House is definitely after misleading the international public opinion.

Referring to the latest report by the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency on Iran’s nuclear program, he quoted US Senate expert, George Tillman as saying no documents currently existed to indicate Iran’s will to develop nuclear arms.

He said those who are trying to accumulate support for their plan of military attack against Iran have been compiling a report which would lead to aggression.

He said the US officials have always tried in the past years to work out documents to officially prove that Iran is engineering nuclear bombs to prepare the ground for attacks against Iran’s nuclear facilities.

Hersh further stressed that analysts, in assessing Iran’s nuclear program, should review the situation in 2002 when the then US President George W Bush accused Iran of possessing a nuclear program which was used to lead evil plans but failed to provide any documents to prove it.
