Tehran (IP) - In response to the US Secretary of State's claims regarding the Islamic Republic of Iran's use of nuclear energy, the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran emphasized that it is ready to counter US coercion and unilateralism regarding the use of nuclear energy.

Iran Press/Iran news: The Atomic Energy Organization of Iran wrote on its Twitter account that scientists of the nuclear industry of the Islamic Republic of Iran are listening to the instructions of the wise Islamic Revolution Leader, and ready to face coercion and unilateralism of the United States regarding the use of nuclear energy.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran nuclear scientists, following the guidelines of the Supreme Leader (Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei), are ready to face the coercion and unilateralism of the US government relating to the use of the nuclear energy,” the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) tweeted on Thursday.

The message adds that foresight in the peaceful use of nuclear energy is a strategic principle for the Islamic Republic of Iran, and nuclear power will forever be in the hands of the Iranian people.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo claimed on his Twitter account that Iran claims that it does not want a nuclear weapon, then threatens the world with its nuclear program. 

Iran has consistently and irreversibly distanced itself from the unconventional weapons on religious and humanitarian grounds. Tehran’s stance in the area has been sealed by a religious decree issued by Ayatollah Khamenei.

Washington has also been providing unfaltering political and material support for the occupying regime of Israel that is known to be the only possessor of nuclear weapons in the Middle East. Tel Aviv is also responsible for assassinating six Iranian nuclear scientists and trying to sabotage Iran’s nuclear program, atrocities that would have likewise not been possible without Washington’s lenience.
