Ahmadinejad: Enemies can't stop Iran nuclear progress
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Sunday that Iran has acquired technology to produce nuclear fuel, stressing enemies' threats and pressure would not prevent progress of the Iranian nation.
President Ahmadinejad was addressing the 6th national conference of clergymen and officials of the Police Ideological and Political Department. "Today, enemies' opposition to Iran's peaceful nuclear technology is not a mere opposition to technological know-how and industry, rather it is a confrontation between all potentials of the global arrogance and political and managerial potentials of the Islamic Revolution.
"Enemies have no concern about enrichment in Iran. They are worried that they might yield to determination of the Islamic Revolution and lose their dignity through Iran's access to nuclear technology," Ahmadinejad said, according to IRNA.
He added, "By the grace of God, enemies will be obliged to succumb to the Iranian nation's will. Enemies have pinned hope on certain individuals inside the country who chant for disdain and surrender.
"Today, enemies of Iranians put the nation under pressure despite the regulations they themselves have ratified and by ignoring the law. "But there are agents inside the country who impose pressure on the nation instead of resisting enemies."
The president said, "Trend of the Iranian people's move towards development and progress will continue. It will not stop or return back.
"Our path is transparent. We will speedily push ahead with a policy drawn up by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei." "The Iranian nation has no fear of threats or pressure. We advocate negotiations and logic," he stressed.
Enemies intend to promote their plans through threats, pressure and sanctions, he said, adding, "The nation expressed its support for Iran's nuclear case on Bahman 22 (February 11) marking the 28th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution.
"Enemies can never inflict damage on the country."
