Khamenei Says Iran Nuclear Weapons are a U.S. 'myth'

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said the concept of Iranian nuclear weapons was a fabrication and the United States was the real source of threat, hardening his rhetoric before nuclear negotiations resume this week. Khamenei said in a televised address to a hall of several hundred military commanders,"They created the myth of nuclear weapons so they could say the Islamic Republic is a source of threat. No, the source of threat is America itself, with its unrestrained, destabilizing interventions."
Iran and six world powers including the United States reached a framework accord on Iran's disputed nuclear program this month and will resume negotiations in Vienna this week, aiming to reach final deal by the end of June.
