Ahmadi-Nejad: Iran not interested in talks with USA, rejects it unilateral sanctions
Iran-USA, Politics, 10/30/2007
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadi-Nejad said today that Iran is not at all interested in talks with Washington and Iran does not have any need for the US.
"If conditions are to be set for the talks, it is the Iranian nation that should do so and you, who are the law-breakers and bullies, cannot dictate terms for dialogue with the Iranian nation," said Ahmadi-Nejad in an address to a group of students on Tuesday. He made the remark in reaction to the US President George W. Bush's claim that Washington would be ready for talks with Iranians if they give up nuclear energy.
He said under fair and equal conditions, Iran is for dialogue and talks. "The nation would not however negotiate its legal and absolute rights. The corrupt and bullying powers, which are against the independence of the Iranian nation are creating obstacles for the advancement of the nation. Enemies had several years ago launched extensive efforts including spreading lies, rumors, and deception, waging psychological war, terror and intimidation to deprive the Iranian nation of its legal and absolute rights in using nuclear energy for peaceful purposes." The president said they first presented some suggestions under the pretext of confidence-building but these proposals gave way to demands that Iranian nation's nuclear and even scientific activities should be stopped.
America's recent unilateral sanctions against Iran over its peaceful nuclear activities are "hollow," he said, adding "The recent US decision (against Iran) has made it clear that the Americans are not even able to harm us unilaterally." President Ahmadi-Nejad said that enemies of Iranian nation are arrogant in spirit. "While fully acknowledging in private sessions Iranian nation's (absolute) rights, they bargain them in direct talks so as to take advantage. We should be vigilant against such mischiefs," said Ahmadi-Nejad.
He said that Iranian nation want the realization of their complete nuclear rights and enemies should know that the people and leadership are insisting on this and would not give up the rights even one iota.
"You should not get angry over the achievements of the Iranian nation because our youth are firm to conquer all peaks of honor. Wise Iranian youth score more success in different fields day by day and you will die of your anger if you frown on the successes," said the president.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Ahmadi-Nejad said, "In our opinion, nuclear issue with the concept of creating necessary political atmosphere is closed and is proceeding on its proper course in the IAEA."
