Ahmadinejad: Iran not afraid of sanctions
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday said that Iran has access to full nuclear fuel cycle and that it is expected to begin production of nuclear fuel for industrial use in the near future.
Speaking at a public gathering in the provincial city of Gatvand, the Iranian leader noted that the Iranian nation is determined not to pay attention to the "useless hues and cries of bullying powers."
Turning to opposition of some bullying countries to Iran's use of nuclear technology, Ahmadinejad stressed, "The Iranians are determined to achieve peaks of success and defend its interests powerfully." According to IRNA, the president said, "They should know that our nation is not afraid of them. They can neither make Iranians give up through threat, bullying, pressure and issuing of worthless resolutions, nor threatening them with sanctions.
"The bullying powers are seeking hegemony over the whole world and do not respect laws. However, they should be aware that irrespective of all their attempts, they should give up in the face of the Iranian people and officially recognize their rights," added Ahmadinejad.
