IAEA chief: No psywar on Iran

Source: Press TV
UN nuclear watchdog boss Mohamed ElBaradei says Washington's psywar to demonize Iran as a nuclear threat to the world should be tossed.

In an interview with Le Monde, the head of International Atomic Energy Agency warned the West against the use of force in a bid to resolve Tehran's nuclear standoff.

ElBaradei said there is plenty of time for diplomacy, sanctions, dialogue, and incentives to bear fruit, urging the international community to be patient with Tehran.

He added that even in a hypothetical situation, that Iran intended 'to acquire a nuclear bomb', Tehran would need between another three and eight years to succeed.

The Islamic Republic has repeatedly stated that it is opposed to nuclear arms; as such weapons have no place in its defense doctrine.

The IAEA chief's remarks come after US Vice President Dick Cheney said Sunday Iran would have to suffer 'serious consequences' if it did not suspend its nuclear activities.
