Rafsanjani terms US', big powers' accusations as baseless
Tehran, June 30, IRNA -- Expediency Council Chairman Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani here Wednesday said the accusations made by the United States and big powers against Iran's peaceful nuclear activities has no basis in fact.
Addressing an ongoing seminar to assess the destructive consequences of the use of chemicals and other weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), Rafsanjani said the issues raised by the big powers against Iran's nuclear programs are stifling the country's efforts to acquire needed scientific and technical knowhow.
"Iran is itself a victim of chemical weapons. Those who accuse us of trying to acquire weapons of mass destruction are themselves guilty of the offense and are just looking for a scapegoat.""
