Iran said Tuesday that all nuclear weapons should be destroyed, shortly after North Korea said it had conducted its third nuclear test in defiance of existing United Nations resolutions.

"We think we need to come to a point where no country will have any nuclear weapons," said Iran Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast at his weekly news conference on Tuesday, when asked about North Korea's test. "All weapons of mass destruction and nuclear arms need to be destroyed."
