Nuclear Weapons Contradicts Iran's Religious Principles - FM

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said in an interview today with the Euronews channel that the development or use of nuclear weapons contradicts Iran's religious principles and would violate the tenets of Islam.

"Islamic Republic authorities have reiterated that nuclear arms are against the country's religious principals," Salehi said. "We have been committed to the NPT and believe that the proliferation of a nuclear bomb is against the tenets of Islam."

So we begin to see the results of Ahmadinejad's quasi-purge that all started with Mottaki. This was likely pushed as well by a recognition that the Arab protests provide an entree to the regional powership Iran had been seeking (allegedly of course!) via nukes.
