(IRNA) President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad here Monday underlined that the Iranian nation is entitled to access the full capacity of nuclear fuel cycle and that the Iranians will not let anyone deprive them of such a right.
He made the remarks while speaking at the gathering of people at Takhti Stadium in the provincial town of Varamin, situated to the southeast of capital city of Tehran.
Turning to Iranians as a peaceful nation, the chief executive said that the Iranian people will not give up their right to access nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, reports Trend.
Addressing Western governments, he said, "Our nation is seeking its right and according to laws and regulations you were bound to help Iran to access nuclear technology for peaceful use. However, given that you did not take any measure to this end, Iran managed to achieve such a goal by relying on Iranian youth."
Ahmadinejad underlined that no one has the right to prevent the world nations' access to nuclear energy for any reason.
He pointed to Europe's draft resolution on sanctions against Iran and raised the question whether the European states, which have already experienced such sanctions in the past, have ever contributed to development of Iran's nuclear facilities.
The president said that the majority of world governments and nations support Iran's nuclear activities.
