In an interview with state-run media, former MP Ali Motahari admitted Tehran seeks nuclear weapons. “Since we started nuclear activities, our goal was building bombs and deterrence power,” Motahari said.
“But we couldn’t keep it secret and [MEK] revealed our secret reports,” Motahari told ISCA news agency. “A country that wants a peaceful nuclear program does not start with [uranium] enrichment”
The Iranian regime’s illicit nuclear program was first exposed by the Iranian Resistance in 2002. On August 14, 2002, The National Council of Resistance of Iran(NCRI) unveiled the Natanz nuclear site and the heavy water project in Arak during a press conference in Washington.
