Former Iran president: Giving up nuclear rights - ”disgrace”
Former president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani said Friday that it seems the global monopolistic powers are determined to violate the legitimate right of Iranian nation in making use of nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
Addressing the Friday prayer worshipers, Rafsanjani said, "We should adopt a very precise strategy to eliminate the possibility of violation of this legitimate right for Iranian nation." In case such a legitimate right would be violated, he warned, it would be recorded as a very grave development whose acceptance would not be easy for the Iranian nation.
It is not acceptable for our people as well as our wise officials to let such disgrace be recorded in our history, he said. It would be a very great honor for the Islamic revolution to benefit from such right, he said.
