Iranian nation does not need nuclear weapon - President
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Tuesday that the Iranian nation does not need nuclear weapon though it has decided to get hands of the US away from national wealth, IRNA reported.
Addressing a local gathering, President Ahmadinejad condemned Washington's efforts to plunder other countries wealth and resources and humiliate them.
He added that the Iranian nation can achieve their objectives through cultural and logical methodology separate from that of Washington.
He further warned US and its allies against accusing Iran, stressing that if Washington wants to stand up to the Iranian people, it will undoubtedly face a crushing response by them.
While the US administration possesses some 5,000 nuclear bombs, it accuses Iran of producing such bombs, the President said.
Washington and its allies see their progress and development in destroying other countries infrastructure, he reiterated.
Iran's annual budget for nuclear research is dlrs 250 million, while US President Barrack Obama has allocated dlrs 81 billion extra budget for improving the country's nuclear bombs in 2011, Ahmadinejad said.
The President said that documents and evidences prove that those countries which produce and stockpile nuclear bombs are dangerous not the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Criticizing the performance of the International Atomic Energy Agency, he regretted that the agency's Director General Yukiya Amano has no jurisdiction and has violated the body's rules and regulations and is only repeating "Washington's words".
The IAEA has provided several unreal reports on Iran's nuclear program while it has never published any reports on nuclear activities of the US and several other countries which have endangered the whole globe with their nuclear arsenals, Ahmadinejad stressed.
The President said that the White House officials have repeatedly said that they prefer to change their approach towards the Iranian nation, but, the US wrong policies still continue.
Presently, the world nations have been awakened and have stood against Washington, he said.
Condemning the US pressures on Iran, he said the Iranian nation will not retreat from national goals by the US pressure.
