TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that the US intelligence report on the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear programs shot a bullet into the head of all ill-wishers of the Iranian nation.
Addressing a large public congregation in Iran’s western province of Ilam on Wednesday, the president said that despite enemies’ efforts, the Iranian nation could gain victory on the nuclear scene.
“Today, Iran has turned to a nuclear country and all the world countries, even the western states, have accepted this fact,” he said.
“Three months ago I announced that the political story of Iran’s nuclear issue ended and that the Iranian nation would continue its clear and glorious path, but some imagined that I wanted to give courage to the Iranian nation,” the president continued.
Ahmadinejad said that Iran’s nuclear case has now been returned to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and that the righteousness of the Iranian nation was eventually proved.
“The report proved righteousness and legitimacy of the Iranian nation to the enemies,” he said, referring to a report by the US intelligence agencies which dismissed President Bush’s remarks about Iran’s nuclear threat and reiterated that Tehran is conducting peaceful nuclear activities.
Ahmadinejad said, “Although the report aimed to help the US administration overcome its problems, it was a shot in the head of those who filled the world with lies and threats under the forged pretext of Iran’s nuclear weapons program.”
“The US intended to deprive the European countries of the interests they could gain through relations with the Iranian nation, but thanks God, a bullet was shot in the head of the ill-wishers yesterday and their malicious wishes were brought to an end by the hands of the ill-wishers themselves,” he added.
The president called on the West to try the path of honesty and friendship with the Iranian nation, warning that if western countries repeat their mistake and adopt a hostile stance against Iran, the Iranian nation will stand against them and will make them fail again.
He underlined again that the Iranian nation would not retreat along the path of nuclear progress and would not give up even an iota of its nuclear rights.
The Iranian president viewed the two UN Security Council resolutions against Iran as illegal, saying, “Now they don’t know how to solve the problem of these two resolutions because they are illegal and have an incorrect base.”
