Ahmadinejad: Iran is not aggressive
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Friday said that Iranian nation has never been aggressive. "Iranian nation has never throughout history invaded even an acre of others' territory," said President Ahmadinejad in an address to a group of citizens in Khoy.
Ahmadinejad said the Iranian nation are men of dialogue, wisdom and law. He warned certain groups against abusing international organizations and global communities to build up pressure on Iran. "They should know that the nation will not compromise its nuclear rights," he made it clear.
According to IRNA, he ruled out major powers' claims that they were devoid of any nuclear weapons. "The big powers are lying; they have stockpiles of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons; the US has stored thousands of nuclear warheads and tests the third and fourth generations of nuclear bombs. They are falsely claiming to be advocates of peace." The president blamed the big powers for any tension and violence on the four corners of the globe.
"Anywhere on earth there is war and tension, anywhere there is injustice and corruption, their hands are at work."
He repeated his Tuesday call on the US to enter a live televised debate, and questioned, "Aren't you the advocates of nations' freedom? Let's hold debate and do not censor it."
