Involvement in Syria Atomic Work Denied

Involvement in Syria Atomic Work Denied

A parliamentarian said the recent "false media allegations" about Iran's role in developing nuclear weapons in Syria are part of a western scenario to spread Iranophobia across the world.
Lawmaker Vahid Ahmadi said, "Some western countries are trying to convince the world that the Islamic Republic along with some other states is developing a secretive nuclear program," ICANA reported.
In a recent report, the German weekly magazine Der Spiegel claimed that Damascus was building secret an underground nuclear weapons facility.
The paper alleged that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is trying to produce nuclear weapons at the secret facility near the town of Qusayr with the help of Iran and North Korea.
Ahmadi, who is a member of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, said "the western propaganda" about Iran's nuclear program cannot deceive the world about the nature of the country's nuclear work because "Iran has conducted all its nuclear activities within the framework of the International Atomic Energy Agency."
Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Saturday had dismissed allegations by Der Spiegel as "ridiculous."
"The magazine's allegation is one of the attempts made by certain circles whose main objective is (to spread) violence and fear to cloud the international community with illusion and create imaginary concerns about the Islamic Republic," Zarif said.
