(Fars News Agency)- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Thursday stressed that the Iranian nation will not give up even an iota of its right of access to peaceful nuclear technology irrespective of whatever decisions western states may adopt.

"No matter you attend negotiations or not, no matter you frown or not, the Iranian nation will not divert the path of progress and it will not give up even an iota of its right to access peaceful nuclear technology," President Ahmadinejad reiterated while talking to a fervent crowd of the public in the province of Qazvin, reports Trend.

Ahmadinejad reiterated that the Iranian nation may never put its inalienable rights to negotiation, saying, "We may never attend negotiations with anyone about the way we live, the way we decide or the technology we wish to use and if there are some who think that they can negotiate our independence, national sovereignty and the right to decide about our own fate, they are making a big mistake."

Meantime, the Iranian President stated that his country always seeks to negotiate with any enthusiast party about global issues and common concerns or for the removal of the existing misunderstandings.

He stressed that such talks must be arranged at an equal level for both sides and underlined that his nation will never attend negotiations which have been designed on the basis of the carrot and stick policy, "because this kind of arrangement leaves no room for negotiation."

The head of the Iranian Supreme National Security Council reminded that those countries pursing hegemonic policies are now faced with two options, "either obey justice and culture and support the world nations' efforts for the restoration of global peace and security, or soon confront a strong barrier and wall of revolting nations, consequent to which they will have to leave the international scene and go recluse."

The Iranian President viewed access to the nuclear fuel production cycle a product of the Iranian nation's intelligence and solidarity, pointing out that those powers seeking international monopoly have been pushed back by his country's strong will, determination and integration.

"They have had to confess to the nations' glory and grandeur," he said.

Ahmadinejad's statements are deemed more crucial at this juncture than ever since they are interpreted as an indication of Iran's likely answer to the 5+1 proposals.
