Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva said Wednesday that Iran is entitled to the same rights as any other country to use nuclear energy for peaceful ends. Da Silva said Wednesday that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad assured him in meeting on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly that his country's nuclear program was intended solely for peaceful purposes and that he had no reason to doubt him. "As I think Brazil has the right to use nuclear energy for peaceful ends, that's the same thing I defend for Iran, that they can have the same rights as Brazil and as other countries," Silva said a press conference. "I defend for Iran the same thing I defend for Brazil with respect to nuclear energy."
