Rouhani accuses Trump to turning blind eye to Israel’s Nuclear Arsenals

Politics A- A A+

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has censured the US president for turning a blind eye to the Israeli regime’s nuclear arsenal while accusing Iran of seeking to develop nuclear weapons.

Rouhani pointed to Donald Trump’s repeated allegation that Washington is concerned about the Islamic Republic’s potential development of nuclear weapons.

The Iranian chief executive, who was speaking at a government meeting in Tehran on Wednesday, then called on Trump to “[instead] talk about Israel, which is a usurper and has stockpiled all such nuclear arms there” if he is really so much concerned about such weapons.

The Iranian president also reminded that Trump continued to link the Islamic Republic with an intention to build the weapons, despite the fact that Iran’s highest authority has issued a definitive decree banning their acquisition.

“Are you really concerned about nuclear weapons? Are you unaware of  Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei’s fatwa (religious decree), through which he has ruled development of nuclear weapons as illegal?” Rouhani asked.

“So the [US’] allegations, the way they are stated, and the goal [sought by them] are all unfounded,” the Iranian president noted.
