Iranian Cleric: Kerry and Sherman's Nature is 'Ugly'


A senior Iranian cleric has called on Iran's Foreign Ministry to react decisively to what Tehran sees as American threats against the Islamic Republic over its nuclear weapons program.

Ayatollah Mohammad Ali Movahhedi Kermani was reacting to a recent reaffirmation by US Secretary of State John Kerry that the military option against Iran was still viable, and to a statement last week by the US's top nuclear negotiator with Iran, Wendy Sherman, who questioned Iran's need for a heavy water reactor.
