IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Semnan, Jan 8, IRNA -- President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Tuesday that domestic capabilities are the best means to reconstruct the country.

President Ahmadinejad made the remarks in a special ground-breaking ceremony for a combined cycle power plant in the central province of Semnan Tuesday morning.

The country is very rich in natural resources but some try to monopolize them to their own benefits, he said.

'If the Iranian nation gains access to these resources, the bullying powers cannot do the Iranian nation any harm,' he said.

'If the country's mines come on stream, there will be no need for oil, he said, adding 'This will dissuade the enemies from exploiting us,' he said.

Great cultured Iranian nation is the flag bearer of justice and monotheism in the world, he underlined.

'We should be vigilant while utilizing the country's natural resources,' he said.

President Ahmadinejad arrived in Semnan province this morning to inaugurate several industrial and construction projects.
