Senior Cleric Congratulates Iran’s N. Victory

A0237904.jpgTEHRAN (FNA) – Tehran’s provisional Friday Prayers leader Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati said Friday that the IAEA Chief Mohammad ElBaradei’s February 22 Iran report is a “solid evidence of Iranian nation’s righteousness and of the US failure.”

Delivering his second Friday prayers sermon on Tehran University campus, Ayatollah Jannati congratulated Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei and the Iranian people and officials over the “country’s nuclear” victory following the IAEA report.

“ElBaradei’s report was a proof of elimination of ambiguities and charges, that have been raised against the righteous Iranian nation, and was a guarantor of our victory over enemies, especially the US,” he added.

He also warned against issuance of another resolution against Iran by the UN Security Council.

“The Western countries are now pushing for another resolution. I tell them do whatever you want,” Jannati said.

As the crowd chanted “nuclear energy is our definite right” and “down with America,” Jannati said developing Iran’s nuclear program was “our legal right and we will not give it up.”

“The (Iranian) nation has vowed God, the prophet (PBUH) and its leader not to back down its strong and right (nuclear) stances even one iota,” he said.

He emphasized that the only limit in Iran’s nuclear work would be making atomic weapons.

“In the nuclear program, the redline for us is producing atomic weapons,” he said.

Ayatollah Jannati said, “Americans should be embarrassed with taking Iran’s nuclear case to the Security Council,” referring to an IAEA report released last Friday.
