Addressing a large congregation of the public in the town of Robat Karim near Tehran on Wednesday, Ahmadinejad continued, “They have warned us that if we do not suspend enrichment, they will impose sanctions on Iran. But they must know that when they sanctioned us 27 years ago, they actually gifted progress to us.”
“If they hadn’t sanctioned us, we wouldn’t have grown self-sufficient. And now they must know that if they impose sanctions on us, we will certainly make further progress. Sanctions make us self-reliant,” the President added.
He said a nation whose youth manage to acquire the nuclear technology with empty hand, it will certainly be able to built the country.
