President: Iran has no plans to produce nuclear weapons

Davos, Jan 23, IRNA -- President Hassan Rouhani said on Thursday that the Islamic Republic of Iran has no plans to produce nuclear weapons.

He brused aside the western accusations that Iranian nuclear program is a covert plan to produce nuclear weapons.

He told the World Economic Forum that he is an advocate of “prudent moderation” as he pursued a diplomatic offensive to remove his country’s image.

The president said he sought “constructive engagement” with Iran’s neighbors and pledged that his country had no intention of acquiring nuclear weapons.

Referring to international conference to persuade Syrian government representatives and their exiled adversaries to sit down face-to-face at peace talks seeking an end to the humanitarian crisis in Syria, President Rouhani said that the Islamic Republic of Iran believes that the Syrian people must decide their own fate away from foreign intervention.
