Iran urges nuclear disarmament effort
As Tehran hosts an international denuclearization conference, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad urges more global nuclear disarmament efforts.
“The danger of nuclear weapons is threatening the entire universe. We should make more efforts to achieve nuclear disarmament as the production and proliferation of atomic bombs is still on the agenda of certain countries,” said Ahmadinejad in a meeting with Indonesian Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa on Sunday.
He added that serious cooperation was needed for nuclear disarmament to become a reality, saying Iran and Indonesia, as two important countries in Asia, have the potential to expand “constructive” cooperation in order to achieve this goal.
The Indonesian foreign minister said Jakarta understands Tehran’s concerns about the proliferation of nuclear weapons across the world.
Natalegawa, who is in Tehran to take part in an international conference on nuclear disarmament, called on the two countries to make concerted efforts for global nuclear disarmament.
