Ayatollah: Iranian President insults West by resisting it
Even if the UN Security Council applies sanctions against Iran, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, resisting the West's threats, "disarms" and thus insults it, Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati said at Friday prayers in Tehran. Jannati supported Ahmadinejad's scornful attitude to the resolutions of the UN Security Council, FARS news agency reported.
The UN Security Council adopted a resolution imposing new sanctions on Iran over its refusal from ceasing its uranium enrichment activity June 9. About 12 members of the Security Council supported the document, Turkey and Brazil voted against, Lebanon abstained.
Jannati, touching upon Israeli armed attack on convoy of ships, moving with the humanitarian aid to the Gaza, said that the Security Council itself is a very great danger. He said that the UN Security Council is biased towards Iran, and in matters related to Israel, it is silent. Jannati said that Iran has proved to the world that its nuclear program is peaceful in nature.
In early June, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Yukiya Amano in his report on Iran's nuclear program said that suspicions over the production of nuclear weapons by Iran, remain in force.
