President: Iran ready to resolve misunderstandings regarding nuclear plans
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Thursday his country is ready to discuss "mutual concerns" over its nuclear program and claimed the West had given in to the will of the Iranian nation.
"On behalf of the Iranian nation, I'm announcing that the Iranian nation will never hold negotiations about its definite rights with anybody, but we are for talks about mutual concerns to resolve misunderstandings in the international arena," Ahmadinejad told thousands of people in Qazvin, west of the capital Tehran.
According to IRNA, he lauded the "great efforts" of Iranian scientists and youth in the country's nuclear program for "peaceful" purposes. Elsewhere in his speech, President Ahmadinejad blasted the enemies for trying to block Iranian efforts to achieve development and progress, particularly in accessing modern technology.
