TEHRAN - Iran is no longer interested in developing nuclear weapons, according to sources at the the International Atomic Energy Agency. Farouht Keck, a spokesman for the UN's nuclear watchdog, stated that, "based on our analysis, Iran could have nuclear weapons in three weeks if it wanted, but it doesn't."
Asked about the sudden change of heart, an Iranian government official, Mohamed Elbentonbom, stated, "It seem like good idea at time. Every bugger else have one or want one, so we going with flow. But then we get bored with it all. So we not bothered about bomb any more."
Iran's actions have angered the US who were hoping for a third round of sanctions against them. British Foreign Office officials have also expressed disappointment at Iran's new diplomatic policy, stating that it provided them with less justification for flouting the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, upon which it is claimed thousands of UK defence jobs depend.
Jack Straw described the U-turn as "like having Alibaba's magic carpet pulled out from under you".
The Foreign Office is hoping to meet with US policy-makers on Friday to discuss possible sanctions against Iran for its sudden U-turn.
