Iranian foreign minister sought to procure nuclear weapons materials 20 years ago

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akhbar Salehi was involved in attempts to procure nuclear weapons materials 20 years ago according to David Albright, founder of the Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS).
"Salehi knew about or was involved in efforts to create an alleged parallel military nuclear program that is of great interest to the IAEA now," Albright told Reuters, referring to the International Atomic Energy Agency, the United Nations' nuclear watchdog.

"And the intention of that program was probably to make nuclear weapons, including producing highly enriched uranium," Albright said.

While senior IAEA officials have in the past told Reuters they suspected Salehi and Sharif University played a role in such procurement activities, the telexes appear to be the first public evidence supporting those suspicions.
But the world continues to delude itself that Iran has no intention of developing or using nuclear weapons. Better get out the crickets.
