Ahmadinejad: Iran can now talk to world from vantage point of a nuclear state
Iran-Regional, Politics, 4/13/2006
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said yesterday evening the situation has completely changed as far as Iran is concerned and it can now talk to the world from the vantage point of a nuclear state.
His remarks were made during a meeting with students, academics and officials of universities in this northeastern province.
"Today, the enemy camp faces a crisis. But we have no crisis in this country because Iranians stand up to challenges with courage and unity," Ahmadinejad said.
"Those who have lost the support and trust of their nations should be the ones to worry," he added.
Speaking on the third day of a five-day tour of this province, President Ahmadinejad reiterated that Iran was simply enforcing its indisputable right to acquire peaceful nuclear energy and with full observance of international laws and regulations.
"The Iranian nation's right to nuclear energy is non-negotiable," he stressed, adding that "no one can ever force us to back down an inch from the path that we are currently treading."
Stressing that Iranian diplomacy is currently passing through one of its most challenging periods ever, Ahmadinejad noted that it would have to "muster the highest diplomatic skill and planning to successfully interact and negotiate with others." He said Tehran never considers its nuclear achievement to be a threat to anyone or to its enemies because "we desire peace and tranquility and strive to give justice to everyone just as would not tolerate anyone to treat us unjustly." The president disclosed that Tehran had received a message recently asking it to halt its peaceful nuclear activities for just two days allegedly to give time to resolve certain "technical problems" in Iran's nuclear case.
However, repeating what he had earlier said, he warned that if Iran gives in to such request and takes one step back regarding its peaceful nuclear activities those who are opposed to its peaceful nuclear activities "would use the opportunity to work against us." Promising that he would give "more good news" of progress achieved by the country in the field of nuclear science, the president informed that in addition to completing the nuclear fuel cycle, other remarkable achievements have been made in the field of nuclear science which "will be be announced later."
Noting that many have been angered by his announcement of Iran's success in nuclear enrichment and completion of the nuclear cycle, he said "we will tell them to keep on being angry and die from it."
