Fereydoon Abbasi-Davani, Vice President and Head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, says the results of Iran’s 2013 presidential election will affect the country’s disputed nuclear case. Islamic Republic has been accused by the United States and Israel of developing nuclear arms.

“We urge all political groups to take part in Iran’s 2013 presidential election. People must also participate in coming elections to express their loyalty to the foundation of Islamic Republic and Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.” Fereydoon Abbasi remarked during a press-conference.

When asked about the relations between nuclear case and 2013 presidential election, he said: “We believe the results of next presidential election will affect on Iran’s nuclear case. If the country manages the hold elections in the best ways possible, enemies will retreat from their hostile stances against our country.”

Currently Western countries have imposed fatal sanctions in Iran’s economy in order to limit the country’s resources for pushing forward its notorious nuclear projects.

“Iran never seeks for weapon of mass destruction. Base on the Fatwa (religious order) issued by Ayatollah Khamenei, storing this kind of arms in arsenals is against Islamic guidelines, and Iran will never try to create such weapons.”

Iran is not known to currently possess weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and has signed treaties repudiating the possession of weapons of mass destruction.
