    Iranians want answers from Pakistan on nuclear programme comments

    According to this report, from Reuters, the Iranians aren't happy with comments which have been attributed to Pakistan's president Musharraf claiming that Iran wants to build nuclear weapons:

    Pakistani Foreign Ministry spokesman Jalil Abbas Jilani said Musharraf's remarks had been "incorrectly reported". He said Musharraf was asked whether Iran was anxious to develop an atomic bomb. He said Musharraf replied: "I don't know". "With this, this misunderstanding should come to an end," Jilani added.

    In an interview with Germany's Der Spiegel news weekly published Saturday, Musharraf was asked how Iran could be dissuaded from trying to make a nuclear weapon. ``I don't know. They are very anxious to have the bomb,'' he was quoted as responding.

    It's all a misunderstanding.

    If Pakistan is anxious about anyone having the bomb, it's India. But then again, that's why Pakistan aquired nuclear weapons.

    Didn't the Iranian "parliament" just pass a law requiring the country to have nuclear weapons ?

    I have heard no such thing and have found no such evidence in the media. Quite to the contrary, I have found this.

    It sounds like something Dick Cheyney would say (ie. wildly untrue).

    You may be confused with this or this.
