Islamic Republic Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said here Monday opponents of Iranˈs peaceful nuclear program are not after blocking path of nuclear bomb production, as their main strategy is blocking path of power shift at international arena, IRNA reported.
According to our IRNA correspondent in India, Larijani made the comment in a meeting with Indian merchants and economic activists in Mumbai.
He added, ˈSome oppressor major world powers every once in a while create a high media wave right before Iranˈs attending at the negotiation table, pretending that they are agreed with existence of nuclear energy in Iran, but opposed to Iranˈs movement towards manufacturing nuclear weapons.ˈ
He emphasized that the hegemonic powers refrain from broadcasting the truth, reiterating, ˈDuring the while that I was present at the scene of the nuclear talks, apart from the media discussions, I used to hear in serious talks with them that their major problem with Iran is not nuclear weapons.ˈ
The Iranian Majlis Speaker referred to the decree issued by the Supreme Leader of the revolution based on which the Islamic Republic of Iran is not even allowed to manufacture nuclear weapons, adding, ˈThe negotiating sides were even offered that we were ready to register that verdict as an official document of an international organˈ so what else are they after?ˈ
He emphasized that they really do not have such concerns, adding, ˈI suppose for some of these countries the more major and significant strategy is refraining from transfer of power at the international scene.ˈ
Elsewhere in his address Larijani pointed out that Iran and India are two major countries in the region which are both independent and they y both enjoy having strong democratic systems, adding, ˈTehran and the New Delhi are close to each other culturally and in order to achieve advanced technologies they have both taken log strides.ˈ
He added, ˈTherefore, the hegemony-seeking countries are worried from that point of the view and block the path for their implementation of their programs, intending to kill two birds with a single stone.ˈ
The Parliament Speaker pointed out that during the recent centuries serious changes in international poling system have taken place, reiterating, ˈNo one accepts any longer that we are living in a unipolar system and that every one must obey that pole.ˈ
The Islamic Parliament Speaker went on to add that the western forcesˈ exit from Iraq was such a wretched one, arguing, ˈThese countriesˈ exit form Iraq was full of humiliation for them; in Afghanistan, too, they entered claiming to demolish the terrorists, but behind the scene their programming and planning is in harmony and in cooperation with the terrorist groups.ˈ
He referred to the presence of the hegemonic powers behind the scenes in Iraq and in Afghanistan, reiterating, ˈThey claim to be trying to fight against terrorism in those regions under such condition that their planning behind the scene are in collaboration with the terrorists.ˈ
The Islamic Majlis Speaker referring to the status quo in Afghanistan said, ˈThose who claim to be campaigning against terrorism have not only not achieved any of their claimed objectives in their campaign, but also turned Afghanistan into a totally ruined land.ˈ
The War on Terror (also known as the Global War on Terrorism) is a term commonly applied to an international military campaign which started as a result of the 11 September 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States. This resulted in an international military campaign to eliminate al-Qaeda and other militant organizations. The United Kingdom and many other NATO and non-NATO nations participated in the conflict.
The phrase ˈWar on Terrorˈ was first used by the former US president George W. Bush on 20 September 2001. The Bush administration and the western media have since used the term to signify a global military, political, lawful, and conceptual struggle-targeting both organizations designated as terrorist and regimes accused of supporting them. It was typically used with a particular focus on militant Islamists and al-Qaeda.
Although the term is not officially used by the administration of US President Barack Obama (which instead uses the term Overseas Contingency Operation), it is still commonly used by politicians, in the media and by some aspects of government officially, such as the United Statesˈ Global War on Terrorism Service Medal.
