TEHRAN, June 8 (UPI) -- The United States wants to sabotage Pakistan's nuclear facilities so it can dominate the country, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said.

"We have precise information that the [United States] is seeking to sabotage Pakistan's nuclear facilities in a move to weaken the Pakistani nation and government to dominate that country," Ahmadinejad told domestic and foreign reporters in Tehran Tuesday, the Fars News Agency reported.

He gave no details.

The official Islamic Republic News Agency quoted him as claiming Washington is "using the United Nations Security Council and some other international organizations as tools to exercise pressure on Pakistan and weaken its national integrity."

He said the United States has "made massive military invasions against regional states after the 9/11 (the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks) event under the pretext of the fight against terrorism to save its sick economy and the Zionist regime," IRNA reported.
