Iranian official says Iran can now build nukes, “having nuclear authority is vital to confront US and its allies”

“Iran Claims to Have Formula for Nuclear Bomb,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, February 11, 2019:

A senior Iranian official said over the weekend that the Islamic Republic has the chemical and technical know-how to produce a nuclear weapon, according to Farsi language remarks independently translated for the Washington Free Beacon.

Ahmad Khatami, a senior member of Iran’s Assembly of Experts, which enjoys close ties with Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, claimed in recent comments that having a nuclear missile “is vital for Iran to confront the U.S. and its allies,” according to Farsi language comments made over the weekend.

“Having missile[s] and nuclear authority is vital for Iran to confront the U.S. and its allies.” Khatami was quoted as saying in remarks in which he also referred to the United States as a thug.

The comments come on the heels of threats issued by Khamenei to senior Trump administration figures, including Donald Trump himself, National Security Adviser John Bolton, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
