'Countries storing chemical arms cannot be peace advocates'

TEHRAN, June 30 (MNA) — President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Wednesday that those countries that have stockpiled thousands of biological and chemical weapons can’t claim to be the advocates of peace in the world.

June 29 is the National Day of Campaign against Use of Chemical and Microbiological Weapons in Iran. It coincides with the commemoration of the anniversary of the dastardly chemical attacks on the northwestern Iranian city of Sardasht by the Saddam regime in June 1987.

Western countries, particularly German companies, provided the materials needed for production of chemical weapons by the government of Saddam Hussein.

President Ahmadinejad paid homage to the victims of weapons of mass destruction across the world.

The president stressed that peace is born from love and friendship and not from war and hatred.

Ahmadinejad said the greatest liars throughout the history are those who have tried to establish peace through unilateralism.

He went on to say that “the burden of responsibility on our shoulder is to move towards the real peace based on peace and justice.”
