Iranian President Hassan Rouhani charged early Saturday that it would be a "historical joke" for anyone to claim his country was prevented from obtaining nuclear weapons capabilities as he reiterated his claim that Iran's nuclear program was for peaceful purposes.

"As emphasized before,Iran has never sought #nuclear weapons.It'd be historical joke for anyone to claim Iran was prevented from obtaining it," Rouhani said on Twitter.
