Iran is not interested to build any nuclear weapons, President Rouhani


Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that his country is not interested to build any nuclear weapons, as speculation grew here that President Barack Obama may hold direct talks with the new Iranian president on the margins of the UN General Assembly in New York. Iranian President in an interview with an American television reiterated Iran’s stance that “under no circumstances would we seek any weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons, nor will we ever.” We are looking for peaceful nuclear technology, never pursued or sought a nuclear war bomb, and we are not going to make it,” he said. Both and Obama will address the General Assembly in New York on September 24th. White House officials said Obama currently has no planned meeting with Iranian President . But the the event can give a chance of both sides for first face-to-face interaction between American and Iranian President. A hand shake can makes a history and create a turning point in the poor relations. This is the first time after 1979 that any type of meeting chance could be created for dialogue..
