FILE -- In this Sunday, Oct. 14, 2012 file photo released by an official website of the Iranian supreme leader's office, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei listens to a speaker during a meeting in his tour in northeastern Iran. A religious decree issued by Iran's supreme leader banning nuclear weapons is binding for the Iranian government, the Foreign Ministry said Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013, suggesting that the edict should end the debate over whether Tehran is pursuing atomic arms. Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said the West must understand the significance of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's edict for Iran, saying "there is nothing higher than the exalted supreme leader's fatwa to define the framework for our activities in the nuclear field."
