“Sheikh Mohammed said former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had reassured him that Tehran had no intention of building a nuclear weapon.
I think that they’re telling the truth when they say [the nuclear programme] is just for civilian power,” he said.
“I talked to Ahmadinejad and he said ‘if I send a rocket to Israel, how many Palestinians will I kill? And then the US and Europe will destroy my cities. I’m not crazy to go for that. It’s a weapon of the past’.””
