TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) -
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi made the remarks following US Vice President Mike Pence’s comments on Iranophobia, saying that the allegations are repetitious and in line with hostile and unilateral policies of the US administration against Iranian nation and government.
"Iranian nuclear program is completely transparent. All reports released by the IAEA indicate peacefulness of Iranian nuclear activities,” he said.
He continued that US continuous backing for Zionist regime’s military activities which have led to production of hundreds of nuclear warheads show US all-out support for the aggressor regime which is the element of instability and insecurity in the region and world.
"As we have announced frequently, legitimate defense activities of Iran continue based on an organized schedule. This program is completely for defense and deterrence purposes and is not against any country. We neither accept any recommendation nor let others to intervene when it comes to defending our country.”
