Others include Ambassadors from France, German and High Commissioner from UK to Uganda.

The Ambassadors had called on the Minister to brief him and seek support from Uganda for the ongoing negotiations on Iran nuclear program.

They told Kutesa that the agreement was signed in Geneva on November 24, 2013, as first step toward the long term comprehensive solution that would ensure Iran’s Nuclear Program will be exclusively peaceful.


They further noted that the agreement includes relaxing of all nuclear related sanctions as well as no new suctions among others.

On its part Iran re-affirmed that under no circumstances, it will ever seek or develop any nuclear weapons.

The minister welcomed the agreement and expressed happiness that negotiations were given a chance.

He told his guests that “Uganda does not support the development and use of nuclear weapons by any country in the world as it would promote arms race.”

He, however, noted that countries can be allowed to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes

He informed his guests that Uganda had told Iran to open up for inspectors if there is nothing to hide.

The developments come at a time Israel is crying foul over the Geneva nuclear deal, saying it relaxed sanctions that would have compelled Iran to drop her nuclear ambitions.

Israel as well as Iran are strategic allies of the Ugandan government.
