Turkey’s ambassador to Washington said Iran is “irreversibly” on the road toward producing nuclear weapons and called for direct dialogue on the matter between Washington and Tehran.
Ankara in the past has voiced concerns about Iran’s potential nuclear capabilities, but Ambassador Faruk Logoglu’s remarks are the first on-the-record comments by a senior Turkish official stating that neighboring Iran is actually preparing to produce an atomic bomb.
“In my view, Iran is irreversibly bent on having nuclear weapons,” Logoglu told the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies, a think tank based near Washington, on Dec. 19. “Iran’s nuclear weapons would be a serious threat for security in the Middle East.
“The European Union effort [to convince Iran] to give up its nuclear ambitions] is unlikely to succeed,” he said.
Iran says its nuclear plans are limited to peaceful electricity generation. But it hid potential arms-related technology from a United Nations nuclear watchdog for 18 years.

Iran has also purchased nuclear capable missiles and cruise missiles. They have even recently admitted to having nuke warhead blueprints, that they got from A.Q Kahn a couple years ago. Even though they just now handed them over to the IAEA. In a couple years you could easily make millions of copies of the blueprints while handing over the original.
