Most people want US nukes dismantled
An opinion poll suggests that the international community should force the US to accept Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad proposal for dismantling its nukes.
Nearly 53 percent of respondents to the Press TV poll held that the international community should step up pressure on the Obama administration to dismantle its nukes.
Some 38 percent of the respondents said that this feat is impossible because the US would never agree to Ahmadinejad’s proposal. Only seven percent believed that the US has the right to possess nukes.
At the 2010 Review Conference of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) at the UN headquarters in New York, Iran’s president called for the dismantling of all atomic weapons, starting with those in the possession of the US and its allies.
The United Sates, despite being a signatory to the NPT, is the “main suspect” responsible for the stockpiling, spread and the threatening of other nations with nuclear weapons, the Iranian president said.
“We believe that if the United States agrees to dismantle its atomic arsenal, other nuclear-armed states will follow suit,” he told reporters at Mehrabad Airport upon arrival in Tehran from New York.
