A US national security spokesman blamed a "clerical error" for a mistake in a White House statement that falsely claimed Iran currently has a nuclear weapons program, media reported on Tuesday, APA reports quoting Reuters.

 

"The original White House statement included a clerical error, which we quickly detected and fixed," a national security council spokesman told CNN. "To be clear, the United States has long known that Iran had a robust, clandestine nuclear weapons program."

 

The White House issued a statement on Monday saying that "Iran has a robust, clandestine nuclear weapons program."
