Tehran, Iran, May 23 – Iran dismissed on Tuesday remarks by Saudi Arabian officials over its controversial nuclear activities as “unreal”.

Saudi officials had raised concerns that Tehran’s nuclear program might have a military dimension and that it could spark a regional arms race.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi said in a statement that he was astonished by the Saudi position.

“Iran has never been after development of a nuclear bomb and has no need for it either”, Asefi said.

“We expect Saudi officials to not to be influenced by others’ false claims”, he added.

“It seems some have forgotten the nuclear arms of the Zionist regime and instead are trying to put pressure on Iran because it insists on its right to make peaceful use of nuclear energy”, he said.

Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal said last week that Persian Gulf states would send an envoy to Iran shortly to try to persuade it to forgo nuclear weapons.
