TEHRAN (FNA)- President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Sunday that West failed to deprive Iran of its legitimate rights. Ahmadinejad made the remarks in his address to a large crowd of enthusiastic people in Gilan province on Wednesday.Â
The president is visiting the province on the second round of his provincial tours to follow up implementation of the projects that had been approved during the first round of his provincial tours.
By grace of Almighty God, resistance of Iranian people under wise leadership of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s flag has been hoisted with pride worldwide and the enemies feel ashamed, Tehran Times quoted him as saying.
They have confessed to their defeat in the face of the Iranian nation as well as all other nations around the globe, he said.
Addressing the arrogant powers, he said, “You have committed so many crimes and now should stop it, it is time to return to God, justice and a decent life which will be to your benefit,” he said.
“If you inject even dlrs 100 billion a week into your ailing economy, you will not survive,” underlined the president.
“Your fate will not be much better than that of Pharaoh and Nimrod, unless you repent,” he said.
The Iranian nation is unified and will cut off the hands of any aggressors, underlined President Ahmadinejad.
“28 years ago you have imposed a cruel war on the Iranian nation but the brave Iranian nation pushed you towards a humiliating defeat,” he said.
“Our youths are capable enough to give you a crushing response,” underlined the president.
The president’s speech was interrupted several times by the crowd chanting “Death to America”.
Tyranny and violation of people’s rights are the root cause of economic recession in the West, the president said.
It is about 30 years that the great Iranian nation has been exposed to economic and political pressures only because they wanted to be independent and believe in monotheism, he said.
“We have heard that since the beginning of Iraq’s occupation, over 100 million barrels of oil have been taken out from the country,” he said.
President Ahmadinejad, along with his Cabinet members arrived in the city of Rasht, capital of the northern province of Gilan Wednesday morning.
He made the initiative to visit different provinces since he took office in 2005 in order to bring the government closer to ordinary people.
The president will also hold a Cabinet meeting in Rasht to discuss the needs of the province.
