Day after day, the Iranian regime’s lies about its alleged peaceful nuclear program are revealed. Far from conspiracy theories and regional and international fears, the statements, or rather the confessions of the leaders of the mullah system, and the discovered material evidence reinforce those fears from the military side of the nuclear project.
Fereydoun Abbasi, a member of Iran’s Shura Council and the former head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), admitted that his country has a regime aimed at obtaining an atomic bomb.
In an interview with one of the official newspapers on the occasion of the anniversary of the killing of nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, Abbasi said that the name of the organization founded by Fakhrizadeh is the Defense Research and Innovation Organization, indicating that if someone wanted to work in the field of defense innovation, he would need a wide range of science and technology that would automatically lead to nuclear, missile, electronic and other fields. He noted that Fakhrizadeh was the one who “established this system, and his problem was not to defend our homeland only because our country supports the resistance front.”
Despite this, Abbasi tried to claim that nuclear weapons are prohibited because of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s fatwa on the inviolability of nuclear weapons.
These statements came in conjunction with the start of a new round of nuclear talks in the Austrian capital Vienna on the Iranian nuclear program, which indicates that the message that Abbasi sent was intended at this time to threaten American negotiators that his country could resort to the option of producing a nuclear bomb if the talks failed. Abbasi’s justification for the fatwa is not credible, as Iranian Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi had previously threatened to bypass the mentioned fatwa and produce nuclear bombs.
It is clear that the mullah regime has not given up the project of acquiring an atomic bomb, and Khamenei’s fictitious fatwa is the only tool to conceal the project of building the bomb.
Also, Khamenei’s fatwa regarding the prohibition of nuclear weapons cannot be relied upon due to the pragmatic nature of the system of velayat-e faqih (guardianship of the jurist). The founder of the mullah regime, Ruhollah Khomeini, had previously warned Khamenei, the author of the aforementioned fatwa, that the juristic leader should unilaterally cancel the legal covenants he made with the people for the sake of the regime.
In this regard, one can only rely on activating the supervision of the UN Security Council through the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), restricting the enrichment process and imposing inspections at any time and anywhere in accordance with the provisions of the Additional Protocol to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
