Ahmadinejad: Threats from Nuclear States Should Be ‘Punished’

From the A-Jad’s speech at the U.N. just now:

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Monday called for states that threaten to use atomic weapons to be punished, a clear reference to a new U.S. nuclear strategy released last month.

Speaking at a meeting of the 189 signatories of the 1970 nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), he urged “considering any threat to use nuclear weapons or attack against peaceful nuclear facilities as a breach of international peace and security.” The delegations of the United States, Britain and France all walked out of the U.N. General Assembly chamber during the Iranian president’s speech.
