Iran Won't Produce Nuclear Weapons, Khamenei Tells Abe

Iran Won't Produce Nuclear Weapons, Khamenei Tells Abe

   Tehran, June 13 (Jiji Press)--Iran will not produce, possess or use nuclear weapons, and has no intention ever to do these, the country's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei told Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at their first-ever meeting, in Tehran, on Thursday.
   Abe called on Iran to enter into dialogue with the United States to ease tensions that have intensified since Washington unilaterally announced its decision last year to withdraw from the historic 2015 nuclear deal, signed between Iran and six world powers including the United States.
   At the Tehran meeting, Abe quoted U.S. President Donald Trump as saying at their recent talks that Washington does not hope to see any escalation in the Middle East tensions.
   "Concerns are growing over the increasing tensions, and there are complicated feelings among people of the two countries toward each other," Abe told reporters after the meeting.
   "Under the circumstances, it is extremely important for the top leaders of the two countries to have intentions toward easing the tensions," the prime minister added.
