(www.irna.ir) - Iranian Ambassador to Bangkok Mohsen Pak-Ayeen said on Wednesday that the policy of Iran's ruling system is based on gaining access to nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, adding that all diplomatic ways will be used to this end.
Turning to the little effect of the UNSC anti-Iran Resolution 1737 on the country's economic activities, he said that Western states may pressurize Iran through such measures, reports Trend.
"But they will certainly not succeed in suspending Iran's peaceful nuclear programs," he added.
Expounding on the US failures in Iraq, Afghanistan and the Middle East, Pak-Ayeen said, "Given the special problems facing the US, it is quite unlikely to confront Iran. However, in case the US takes such a measure, it will be subject to serious damage." The Iranian diplomat said that following the US defeat in Iraq, it intends to justify its presence in the country, adding that this accounts for bringing up the idea of confrontation with Iran's influence.
He pointed to the increased number of US troops in Iraq as a reason for further insecurity in the country and the increasing popular resistance vis-a-vis foreign forces.
