TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, stressing his country’s nuclear power, said that Iran will soon start nuclear fuel production at an industrial level irrespective of the strong opposition shown by the US president and other world powers.
Addressing the local residents in the southwestern town of Gatvand in Iran’s oil-rich Khuzestan province on Wednesday, the president stressed his country’s nuclear progress and continued, “The Iranian nation will not give up even an iota of its nuclear rights and the bullying powers and enemies of humanity, who do not feel respect for the world rules and regulations, are obliged to give in to the Iranians’ strong resistance and recognize Iran’s rights.”
“Do not imagine that you can deprive the Iranian nation of its rights through making hue and cry and propaganda, because the Iranian nation is not moving on a historical path while it has adopted a firm and strong decision to continue nuclear progress,” Ahmadinejad said, addressing the western powers.
Reiterating that Iranians will defend their interests by all means, he also reminded that Iran is an established nuclear power today since it possesses the nuclear fuel production cycle, and underlined, “Iran will soon start nuclear fuel production at an industrial level and it won’t regard the opposition shown by (US President) Bush and the corrupt powers.”
The tour of Khuzestan is the 24th provincial visit of the president and his cabinet. President Ahmadinejad and his ministers have already had a tour of the provinces of South Khorassan, Sistan and Baluchestan, Ilam, Qom, Hormozgan, Bushehr, Chahar Mahal and Bakhtiari, Lorestan, Golestan, Kohkilouyeh and Boyer Ahmad, Khorassan Razavi, Zanjan, Markazi, Qazvin, Hamedan, East Azerbaijan, Tehran, North Khorassan, Kurdistan, West Azerbaijan, Ardabil, Mazandaran and Kermanshah.
