United Nations: Nuclear weapons have no place in Iran's security' - Rouhani

President of Iran, Hassan Rouhani, stated that nuclear weapon and other weapons of the mass destruction have no place in his nation's security and defence during a speech at the 68th Session of the United Nations General Assembly Wednesday at the UN headquarters in in New York City. Rouhani focused on Tehran's nuclear program and causes of violence in the Middle East during his first address at the UN.

Rouhani said: "Iran's nuclear programme, and for that matter, that of all other countries must pursue exclusively peaceful purposes. I declare here openly and unambiguously that notwithstanding the positions of others, this has been and will always be an objective of Islamic Republic of Iran. Nuclear weapon and other weapons of the mass destruction have no place in Iran's security and defence doctrine and contradict our fundamental religious and ethical convictions, our national interests make it imperative that we remove any and all reasonable concerns about Iran's peaceful nuclear programme."

The Iranian leader said that people all over the world are 'tired of war', encouraging other world leaders, international organizations and civil institutions to join the World Against Violence and Extremism project.
