Opposition group claims: Iran builds nuclear bomb
The Iranian Foreign Ministry issued a statement on state television claiming that Tehran does not now intend to carry heavy weapons. “Iran’s defense doctrine relies on manpower and domestic production capacity. The purchase of weapons of mass destruction or the campaign to acquire foreign weapons has no place in our defense doctrine.”
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani last week referred to the lifting of the embargo and said: “I congratulate our people on the lifting of the cruel arms embargo on us, after ten years of repression, we will have no such restrictions. We fought against the United States for four years and now in desperation they knock Another door in an attempt to preserve the embargo. “
Brigadier General Yossi Kuperwasser, a senior researcher at the Jerusalem Center for Public and State Affairs and former Chief of Staff at the Israel Defense Forces, explained that: “The alleged end of the arms embargo on Iran on October 18, as required by the JCPOA, will allow Iran Purchase and export unlimited weapons. This is despite the fact that Iran is blatantly and openly violating all its obligations under the agreement. “
