Ahmadinejad on Nuclear deterrance

Does Ahmadinejad believe in Atomic weapons as legitimate means of settling conflict?

In a recent press conference, he claimed not, and stated that:

“Atomic bombs do not give anyone superiority and they are not useable. Therefore, we base our relations with other governments and nations on (criteria that go) beyond bombs and temporary policies.”

(2/17/12, Iran’s governmental Website, http://www.president.ir/en/35078)

If this is true, then why is iran building nuclear weapons in the first place?
