Iran has enough material to make nuclear bomb: US officerMarch 2nd, 2009 - 12:43 pm ICT by IANS
Washington, March 2 (Xinhua) Iran has enough material to build a nuclear bomb, said US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Michael Mullen Sunday.
“We think they do, quite frankly,” Mullen told CNN’s “State of the Union” presided by John King, when asked if Iran had enough nuclear material to build the nuke.
“And Iran having a nuclear weapon, I’ve believed for a long time, is a very, very bad outcome for the region and for the world,” said the top US army officer.
In a report submitted last month to the UN Security Council, Mohamed El Baradei, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said Iran still refused to fulfill UN’s requirement of stopping its uranium enrichment activity.
Responding to the IAEA report, Iran has vowed to continue its nuclear work.
Iran insists that its nuclear plan is only for peaceful purposes, and continues its uranium enrichment activity despite the pressure from the western countries and relevant resolutions and sanctions of the UN.
