DUBAI - Iran will never try to obtain a nuclear bomb but will not give up the pursuit of peaceful nuclear energy, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei told a gathering of leaders of developing countries meeting in Tehran.

"Iran will never pursue nuclear weapons and will not give up its nation's right to peaceful nuclear energy," Khamenei told the Non-Aligned Movement summit. "Our motto is nuclear energy for all, and nuclear weapons for none."

Iran's nuclear program is suspected by the West of being aimed at developing an atomic bomb, an accusation Iran denies.
