“Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi has said that any government that uses weapons of mass destruction will lose all legitimacy.

Salehi made the remarks in a speech during a meeting of the U.S. Council for Foreign Relations, which was held on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly session in New York on Tuesday, Ynetnews reported.

“If any country… uses weapons of mass destruction, that is the end of the validity, eligibility, legality, whatever you name it, of that government,” Salehi stated.

He added, “Weapons of mass destruction… is against humanity, something that is not acceptable.”

Commenting on the crisis in Syria, Salehi said that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad “erred” in handling the situation.

“Some mistakes have been made, but that does not justify, in any way, outside intervention,” he said.
