Iran stood apart Tuesday from the chorus of countries condemning North Korea for its declared nuclear test, with a government spokesman putting the blame on Washington and calling for universal nuclear disarmament. In the first official response to the test, government spokesman Gholam Hossein Elham told reporters that Iran opposed "any use of weapons of mass destruction, especially nuclear weapons." But he did not criticize North Korea for developing a nuclear weapon. "The root cause of this (test) should be sought in the policy, behavior and method adopted by the rulers of the United States," Elham said.
