LONDON  — Opposition politicians have been needling British leader David Cameron for telling a town hall audience that Iran "has got a nuclear weapon."

The prime minister was speaking about Turkish accession to the EU before a crowd of local residents in the English seaside town of Hove on Thursday when he made the slip.

He was saying that the EU would be better off in Turkey joined because it could help solve problems "like the Middle East peace process and the fact that Iran has got a nuclear weapon."

Cameron's Downing Street Office insisted that it was clear he was referring to Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons.
