Ahmadinejad: No one can damage Iran rights and interests
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stressed Thursday that no bullying power can damage the Iranian nation's rights and interests. Addressing a large gathering of residents of the provincial city of Larestan, the Iranian leader said his nation believes in administration of law and logic and has never violated rights of other nations. However, he added that the Iranian nation will teach a good lesson to aggressors.
The bullying powers think that they can create discord among Iranian people by issuing statements and launching psychological warfare, he said, according to IRNA.
The Iranian nation considers making use of nuclear power for peaceful means as its inalienable right, therefore, will not withdraw from this legitimate right and insists on its rights with tied fists, the president reiterated.
Meanwhile, Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki on Wednesday evening voiced hope that serious and constructive talks would resume between Iran and the Western countries to settle the nuclear issue. Talking to Iranian nationals gathered in Iran's Embassy in Caracas, he reiterated that Iran will never abandon its inalienable right to pursue peaceful nuclear activities.
