Iran not afraid to make nuke weapon: Ahmadinejad

Iran insists its nuke programs are meant only to generate power for future nuclear reactor network.

Tehran: Iran`s President says his country isn`t afraid of making a nuclear weapon but doesn`t intend to do so.

Iranian state television on Thursday quoted President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as saying: "If we do want to make a bomb, we are not afraid of anybody."

Iran has long insisted that its nuclear programs are peaceful and meant only to generate power for a future nuclear reactor network.

But the UN Security Council has passed four sets of sanctions against Iran for refusing to freeze activities that could be used in a weapons program.

The UN says Iran also blocked an IAEA probe into allegations of secret experiments that could reflect attempts to develop an arms program.
