Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad blasted great powers for their bullying approach towards other world nations, warning that their demise is imminent. Speaking at a dinner banquet thrown in his honor by his Algerian counterpart Abdelaziz Bouteflika in Algiers on Tuesday, Ahmadinejad also lashed out at great powers for their occupation of Iraq, and said that their presence in that country has sparked daily massacre of innocent civilians.
“Iraq, this part of Islamic lands is kept far away from progress, while insecurity in that country, which has been resulted from the wrong policies of occupiers, has disturbed people’s daily life,” he said.
The Iranian president also pointed out that the world bullying powers are trespassing the rights of the world nations and states through imposing political, economic and military pressures and extensive propaganda.
Elsewhere, he stressed solidarity among Iranian and Algerian people whom he described as two freedom and justice-seeking nations.
Noting the two governments’ resolve to further expand bilateral ties in all the different areas, he said Iran and Algeria enjoy abundant potentials, possibilities and experiences, and called for the two states’ extensive cooperation and interaction.
Ahmadinejad also said that Iranian and Algerian governments share identical concerns, and added, “We are worried about the situation in Palestine and we are wrathful because we witness that after 60 years of occupation, great powers still render support to the corrupt regime of the Zionists while they continue their daily invasion, aggression and massacre of the Palestinian people, including the children, youngsters, men and women.”
For his part, Algerian president voiced support for Ahmadinejad’s words in defense of the Palestinians’ rights and formation of a Palestinian state with the Holy Qods as its capital.
Abdelaziz Bouteflika also underlined the rights of the entire independent states to utilize peaceful nuclear technology, and called for Iran-Algeria cooperation in resolving the existing challenges in the Middle-East and the region.
