Iran dismisses concerns about nuclear material

The Iranian Foreign Ministry on Monday dismissed concerns about how much fissile material the Islamic republic possessed by saying the country did not plan to develop a nuclear weapon. Foreign Ministry spokesman Hasan Qashqavi's comments come a day after the top US military official said Iran had sufficient material for a nuclear weapon. Qashqavi implied that even if Iran wanted to convert its enriched uranium into weapons-grade fuel, it would be difficult under the watchful eye of international nuclear inspectors.
