The Iranian Foreign Ministry on Monday dismissed concerns about how much fissile material the Islamic republic possessed by saying the country did not plan to develop a nuclear weapon. Foreign Ministry spokesman Hasan Qashqavi's comments come a day after the top US military official said Iran had sufficient material for a nuclear weapon. Qashqavi implied that even if Iran wanted to convert its enriched uranium into weapons-grade fuel, it would be difficult under the watchful eye of international nuclear inspectors.
