With fist clenched, Ahmadinejad accused both the U.S. and Israel of threatening other nations.
Bloomberg reported:

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad today said the possession of nuclear weapons is “shameful.”

“The possession of nuclear bombs is not a source of pride,” Ahmadinejad said at the opening of a monthlong conference at the United Nations on the Nuclear Non- Proliferation Treaty. “Its possession is disgusting and shameful.”

“What really is the cause of failure to disarm?” he said. “To answer this question one should look into the policies and practices of certain states as well as the Non-Proliferation Treaty.”

Ahmadinejad said nuclear deterrence fuels a global arms race, and he accused both the U.S. and Israel of threatening other nations.

“The United States has threatened to use nuclear weapons against other countries, including my country,” he said. “The Zionist regime, too, continuously threatens other Middle Eastern countries.”
