Iran condemned the United States’ latest nuclear test on Saturday, saying it reflected “inattention to full disarmament which is a deep-seated demand of international public opinion.”
Foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast made the remarks to state television, the Agence France-Presse reports, after the U.S. Energy Department on Wednesday conducted a “subcritical” test at an underground site in Nevada. The limited test was the first since February 2011.
Mehmanparast said Iran was “one of the victims of weapons of mass destruction” during its war with Iraq and as such “will pursue the supreme leader’s fatwa regarding the prohibition of production, storage or use of such weapons until it has been fully realized.”
