Venezuela Won't Seek Nuclear Bomb Technology in Iran

June 23 (Bloomberg) -- Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez dismissed European press reports that he would sign an agreement with Iran to develop nuclear weapons when he visits the Central Asian country next week.

``We don't need an atomic bomb, because we already have one: it's called the Venezuelan people,'' Chavez said in a televised speech to thousands of supporters at a political rally in Caracas. ``That has the force of 100 atomic bombs.''
