The 200-kiloton warheads were due to be returned to Russia in 1992 after Ukraine declared itself a nuclear-free zone following a payment by Moscow to Kiev of approximately $500 million. The missing warheads were inventoried on papers Ukraine submitted to Moscow that were officially accepted by Russia.
Besides reimbursement, Ukraine was to receive uranium for its reactors from Russia’s AES as part of the deal.
Sergey Sinchenko, a member of a parliamentary commission investigating illegal arms trafficking, revealed the discrepancies. According to Sinchenko, the nuclear warheads could remain combat-ready up to at least 2010.
Ukraine’s ForUm news agency reported on April 3 that Russian General Staff Chief and Deputy Defense Minister General Yuri Baluyevsky said, “Russia’s General Staff has no information about whether Ukraine has given 250 nuclear warheads to Iran or not. I do not comment on unsubstantiated reports.”
DOCUMENTS INDICATE IRAN HAS NUCLEAR WEAPONS
ISRAEL LINE THURSDAY, APRIL 9, 1998
According to Iranian government documents in Israel's possession, Iran
received several nuclear warheads from a former Soviet republic during the
early 1990s, THE JERUSALEM POST reported.
PLEASE don't turn this into a battle about the question if Iran should or shouldn't be allowed to have and develop nuclear weapons.

Hmmm, nukes but no delivery system???

Just a thought.....

Simple answer, they don't have the alleged nuclear weapons and have no intention of wiping anyone off any map.

OK answer this question, why doesn't Israel just deny that they have nukes, or accept that they have nukes?
And to sum it up, you need to bring evidence that Iran is either pursuing or already have nukes.
Up to now I haven't seen sh1t.
