G7 expresses concern over Iran’s nuclear program

Leaders of the G7 “remain deeply concerned about Iran’s unabated escalation of its nuclear programme”, according to a draft version of their communique seen by the Reuters news agency. Iran has categorically ruled out pursuing atomic bombs in its nuclear program.

“We reiterate our clear determination that Iran must never develop a nuclear weapon,” said the draft at the start of a three-day summit in the Japanese city of Hiroshima.

“We express our grave concern regarding Iran’s continued destabilising activities, including the transfer of missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVS) and related technologies to state and non-state actors,” the draft read.

Tehran has repeatedly stated that it has no intention of developing nuclear weapons, with Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei even issuing religious edicts against the atom bomb and other weapons of mass destruction.
