U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday that preventing Iran developing a nuclear weapon in future was more important now than "ambiguities" about its past military efforts. Kerry said it would be premature to comment on a leaked report by the U.N. atomic watchdog that strongly suggested Tehran had a nuclear weapons program for years until 2003, since deliberations were not completed. From the get-go, we have consistently said we know that Iran was pursuing a nuclear project." What really mattered now, Kerry said, was "making certain that none of whatever happened in the past can happen going forward into the future".
