Mehr News: "Nuclear weapons contrary to tenets of Islam"

More from Mehr:
The Supreme Leader lauded Iranian scientists for their advances in the civilian application of nuclear energy and noted that the UN nuclear body has acknowledged that Iran has become a member of the world’s nuclear club.

"We are not seeking nuclear weapons. Western states are well aware that manufacturing nuclear weapons runs contrary to the political and economic interests of the nation and is a violation of the tenets of Islam," he added.
The funniest part of the sentence is the bit about Western awareness. And still those rascally Western states pretend to be worried!
