TEHRAN – Iranian Defense Minister Ali Shamkhani on Wednesday dismissed the US claim that nuclear tests have been conducted in the Parchin region in Iran, the official IRNA news agency reported.

“The claim is baseless. Such claims are not unprecedented on the part of the United States,” Shamkhani was quoted as saying. “Americans have also claimed before that nuclear experiments were launched in different parts of Iran, while no such things have happened,” Shamkhani said.

Shamkhani also poked fun at the US intelligence system, referring to its failure to prevent the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and the abuse of war prisoners in Iraq.

“Americans’ poor information on different issues such as the Sept. 11 event and abuse of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison have brought them nothing but disgrace and scandal,” Shamkhani said.

Parchin, 30 km southwest of Tehran, is a site for Iran’s defense industry research.

Washington, accusing Iran of secretly developing atomic weapons, has alleged that Iran have launched nuclear tests in Parchin, which was vehemently denied by Tehran.
