Xinhua, April 25, 2011

Iran plans to hold international nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation conference in mid-June, the local ISNA news agency reported on Sunday.

It would be Iran’s second conference on nuclear disarmament which is scheduled for June 12-13 and mainly will seek examination of current challenges on nuclear disarmament and other Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD), said the report.

Tehran hosted the first international disarmament conference on April 18-19, 2010.

After U.S. President Barack Obama and his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev met in Washington on May 13, 2010 to cooperate on nuclear disarmament, Iranian Majlis (Parliament) Speaker Ali Larijani criticized the United States saying that the U.S. was not ready to have a timetable for disarmament.
