Hezbollah official praises Iran’s nuclear program
Hezbollah says Iran’s nuclear program is in the best interests of Muslim nations.
Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General Sheikh Naim Qassem said on Saturday that the United States is an oppressive and colonialist power in the region that has dealt numerous blows to the Mideast.
“The US administration seeks to deter Iran from its nuclear development program by means of pressure and tough sanctions. It calls on Tehran to give assurances that its nuclear activities are of a civilian nature, even though it has done so,” Qassem added.
He went on to say that even if Iran presents hundreds of pieces of evidence proving its nuclear program is peaceful, the US and other Western countries will reject it all.
