Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast says Tehran's international conference on nuclear disarmament has been widely welcomed.
According to Mehmanparast, the conference dubbed "Nuclear energy for all, nuclear weapons for none,” will be held in Tehran on April 17th and 18th.

"Officials from various countries, international organizations, and non-governmental organizations have been invited to attend the conference," the Iranian spokesperson added.

Iran's Ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Ali Asghar Soltanieh said that senior officials form the IAEA and the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization will also attend the disarmament summit.

"The conference has been widely welcomed by all countries," he went on to say.

Mehmanparast further pointed out that all the countries in the world have the right to use peaceful nuclear energy.

"We believe the world must be free from nuclear weapons," he asserted.

Earlier, Mehmanparast had urged the countries which possess nuclear weapons to destroy their atomic armaments.

"We insist that all countries must be committed to nuclear disarmament," he said early February.
