Ahmadinejad Dismisses Sanctions
(iran-daily.com)- President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Sunday dismissed reports on possible imposition of sanctions over Irans nuclear program, saying its meaningless to talk about sanctions.
Addressing a seminar of Basiji (volunteer forces) commanders in Tehran, Ahmadinejad noted that enemies believe that if they conceal their illegal decisions under the guise of UN Security Council resolutions, their decisions will become legitimate, IRNA reported.
They (enemies) should be aware that if they want to take wrong decisions against Iran and issue resolutions, the Iranian nation will reject their illegal resolution, he said.
The chief executive added that the opposition of enemies is due to their concern over the revival of Islamic identity in the Muslim world.
He noted that the enemies are afraid of self-esteem, faith and scientific and industrial advances in the Muslim world.
Stating that arrogant world powers have created problems on different pretexts, Ahmadinejad pointed out that enemies do not want the Muslim world to see progress and development.
Enemies have not given us anything that they now want to take it back through sanctions, he said.
They know that they are not able to confront the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Stressing that enemies of the Islamic system have become active both at home and abroad to sow discord among the Iranian people, the president said God-willing, they will also fail this time.
Ahmadinejad further said the Iranian people possess the capabilities to defend their interests and position.
Today Iranians have achieved nuclear technology and speak to the world from this position, he said.
