TEHRAN, Iran —It's the closest any Iranian official has come to admitting the role Pakistan played in the earliest stages of Iran's nuclear program.

In an exclusive interview with NBC News, the head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization, Gholamreza Aghazadeh, acknowledged Pakistan's help.

"I do have information that some years ago, through intermediaries, we received pieces for centrifuges," he told NBC News in Farsi.

The head of the nuclear program said Iran will not give up its nuclear ambitions.

"If there is an understanding that we will give up our nuclear program, that is a big mistake," said Aghazadeh via a translator.

He added that Iran is ready to guarantee it will not pursue nuclear weapons and offer other concessions in exchange for an end to international isolation.

Preston Mendenhall: Does Iran need a nuclear bomb?

Gholamreza Aghazadeh: No.

Mendenhall: Is Iran building a nuclear weapon?

Aghazadeh: No.

it looks like Iran is not interesting in getting nuclear weapons so we should all relax and applaud Iran in getting nuclear energy .
