Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei opened the 16th Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) Summit in Tehran on Thursday. In his inaugural speech to the heads of state and government of member countries, Ayatollah Khamenei said "the use of nuclear weapons" was a "big and unforgivable sin," although he did not extend that designation to their production. He added that Iran has never pursued nuclear weapons but it will not abandon its peaceful nuclear program. "Nuclear energy for all, nuclear weapons for none," he said.
