Ahmadinejad: Iranian nation not to retreat from its path
The country's enemies would not taste victory, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Wednesday, ISNA reported.
His remarks came after the release of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Yukiya Amano's report on the country's nuclear enrichment which has claimed there are possible military aspects in the country's nuclear drive.
Ahmadinejad speaking to crowds of people in western Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari Province and reiterated, "Some bullying powers are armed with atomic bombs and they claim Iran is seeking such bombs. The Iranian nation does not fear you if it wants to make bomb, but it does not need bomb."
He also called for the West to change its approach towards Iran and added, "Why do you exploit the IAEA dignity in favor of the US administration."
Ahmadinejad continued that the Iranian nation does not retreat from its path.
Iran criticized the recent IAEA report on its nuclear activities, saying that Amano's approach is dangerous and goes against the agency's articles of association.
Iranian representative to the IAEA Ali Asghar Soltanieh called the agency Chief's report on Iran's nuclear enrichment "repetitious and politically-motivated" and said, "Amano's report which repeats the previous claims hurt the constructive climate between Iran and the IAEA created over last months."
Iran is under 4 rounds of the UN Security Council resolutions over its refusal to halt peaceful enrichment work.
Also the EU and the US had imposed unilateral sanctions against Iran. Iran insists that its nuclear drive only seeks peaceful purposes including power generation and medical needs
