Iran will become nuclear nation in May

While most of the world is trying to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons, Iran has declared that it is expecting to join the nuclear club in May.

The statement comes from Behzad Soltani, deputy head of Iran’s atomic energy organization. He has come out to say that within one month Iran will become the newest member of the world nuclear club and that as soon as in May, Iran will become a “nuclear nation” that no other country will even think of launching an attack against.

Iranian Fares News Agency also quoted Mr Soltani as saying that Iran is now planning to expand its nuclear program for purposes other than energy and nuclear fuel production.

So far Iran has not been transparent and responsive on the matter of its nuclear program, which raised questions from the international community on whether Iran’s motives were of a peaceful nature.

If Iran does not respond any time soon to the international community’s requests to be more open about its plans, the rest of the world may have to resort to new sanctions.
