Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Wednesday that his country will soon celebrate a nuclear victory thanks to the efforts of Iranian youth and experts. President Ahmadinejad, who arrived in the western city of Sanandaj Wednesday morning, made the disclosure while addressing local residents at Shahid Malek-Nia Stadium.
"The passage of time will be in favor of the Iranian nation while Western states will move backward with every passing day. They (have no alternative) but to acknowledge the rights of the Iranian nation," he said, according to IRNA.
"The Iranian nation is taking a major step towards accessing peaceful nuclear energy with every passing day.
"Certain colonial states have monopolized nuclear energy and try to impose their own demands on other states...they do not want other nations to achieve progress," he added.
The president moreover added that whenever and wherever weapons of mass destruction are found, their origins can be traced to the US and its allies. "The Iranian nation desires progress and is kind. Our people do not use bullying."
