Tehran, Aug 10, IRNA – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi referred to a quote by William Faulkner saying 'Maybe nothing ever happens once and said bomber of Hiroshima and Nagasaki is a government which now claims of fighting weapons of mass destruction. "Maybe nothing ever happens once, atomic bombardment happened more than once," Mousavi wrote on his Twitter account. Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombardment is still in Japanese people's memories, cause of both is a government which claims of fighting weapons of mass destruction instead of responding, he added. Earlier, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a message referred to the 75th anniversary of atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan, saying "the US, ISRAEL nuclear weapons threaten our region". The United States dropped the bombs after obtaining the consent of the United Kingdom, as required by the Quebec Agreement.
