Iran ready for nuclear negotiations within legal framework - Ahmadinejad
( IRNA ) - Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced here Friday Iran's readiness for resuming negotiations over its peaceful nuclear activities, if honesty, laws, and justice would be observed by the West.
According to IRNA's dispatched reporter along with the presidential delegation in their 29th provincial tour, President Ahmadinejad, addressing the Western powers, added at the gathering of Shadegan people, "If your nuclear fuel factories are supposed to remain functioning, but ours are to be shut down, under such conditions there would never be any negotiations."
Ahmadinejad emphasized, "No one in Iran gets scared of your hue and cry any more, and no one would cooperate with you for the sake of financial benefits, and even if such a person exists, he would not dare to do so fearing the nation."
The President reiterated, "Do not assume that resorting to ratification of resolutions, threatening us, and launching a psychological war you would manage to block the path of the Iranian nation's progress, because this nation is resolutely determined to conquer the peaks of grandeur, and would not abandon that sacred goal due to your playing with the fire."
Ahmadinejad pointed out that the oppressor powers would fail in their efforts to halt the Iranian nation's progress, even temporarily, adding, "You would not even succeed in slowing the path of the Iranian nation's progress."
He reiterated, "Your objections would merely further strengthen the national unity and solidarity among the Iranian people, and make them feel more determined for paving this sacred path more strongly than ever before."
Head of the country's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) referring to the 28-year history of the US sanctions against the Iranian nation, and the eight-year Iraqi imposed war, added, "The nuclear issue is not a toy to play with, since it belongs to the entire Iranian nation, and it is the fruit of selfless endeavors and tireless efforts of this brave, great and dear nation."
