Supreme Leader: Iran not after nuclear bombs
Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Monday referred to the recent US bullyings and said the Iranian people and officials have got used to the "tough and threatening" language of the enemies and, while keeping an eye vigilantly on the threats, would stay the course.
He touched upon the US "lies" on Iran's efforts to develop nuclear weapons and said that Americans are fully aware that developing nuclear weapons in Iran is a "fable" and untrue. "They (the Americans) indeed are afraid of an independent, advanced and Muslim state endowed with sophisticated technology. They are seeking to bloc Iran's progress through ballyhoo and thus keep the state needy with stretched hands towards themselves. The Islamic Republic of Iran is rightous in getting access to peaceful nuclear energy, "the Leader continued.
"We are not after nuclear bombs ... just the United States can follow the sort of things... Islam does not allow us to act like that even towards our enemies".
