Iran reassures Japan over nuclear programmes
Iran will never develop atomic weapons, an envoy told Japan during a visit Tuesday, insisting that the Islamic state’s nuclear programmes are purely for peaceful purposes, Japanese officials said. Iran’s top nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili told Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama that weapons of mass destruction “are against Islamic teaching and that Iran would never develop such weapons,” according to Hatoyama’s office. Hatoyama for his part said Japan was “concerned about the mistrust between Iran and the Western nations.” “He said Japan is prepared to play a role, if the both parties solve the mistrust and step toward peace,” Hatoyama’s office said. Iran insists that its nuclear programme is solely for civilian purposes and rejects Western suspicions that it is covertly trying to develop a bomb. On Monday Jalili said Iran was not interested in acquiring nuclear weapons from overseas, after the Wall Street Journal reported that a planeload of arms from North Korea, seized in Thailand, was headed to Iran. “We seriously oppose mass destruction nuclear weapons,” Jalili told reporters. “The question that we are after such things is completely baseless and we are not at all after such weapons, let alone bring it or importing it from other countries,” he said. Thai officials said they impounded the plane on a US tip-off after it landed to refuel at a Bangkok airport on December 11 with cargo including shoulder-launched missiles and rocket-propelled grenades. Resource-poor Japan maintains relatively warm relations with Iran, in a rare break with the United States, its main ally.

is working on a nuclear bomb trigger were “forged” by Washington, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has told a US news network.”They are all fabricated bunch of papers continuously being forged and disseminated by the American government,” Ahmadinejad told ABC News in an interview aired Monday when asked about the confidential documents first revealed in London’s The Times newspaper.

The obtained documents describe a four-year plan to test a neutron initiator, the component of a nuclear bomb that triggers an explosion.

The Times claimed that foreign intelligence agencies dated the documents to early 2007 — four years after Tehran was thought to have suspended its weapons programme.

Describing charges that Iran’s is continuing work on a clandestine nuclear weapons program as “a repetitive and tasteless joke,” Ahmadinejad said the reports were about a nuclear trigger were “fundamentally not true.”

US President Barack Obama’s senior advisor David Axelrod said Sunday that any accusation of Washington fabricating documents was “nonsense.”
