US President George W. Bush promised on Friday that the United State will not allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons, even after US President-elect Barack Obama's inauguration on January 20, 2009. Speaking at the Saban Forum, Bush called Teheran's nuclear program a threat to international peace, noting that diplomatic and economic incentives from the West had been turned down by the Islamic Republic. "While Iran has not accepted these offers, we have made our bottom line clear: For the safety of our people and the peace of the world, America will not allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapon," he said. The US president went on to speak about problems in the entire Middle East, saying, "Iran and Syria continue to sponsor terror, Iran's uranium enrichment remains a major threat to peace, and many in the region still live under oppression."
