Baku, May 5, IRNA
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said here Friday that no independent state will accept the literature of the bullying powers.
"Our stances on nuclear activities are based on the international regulations and those taking stances against our country in the case of nuclear energy should know that if nuclear energy is good, why we should not have it and if it is bad, why they should have it," said Ahmadinejad in a press conference on the sidelines of the 9th ECO summit.
On Tehran-Baku relations, Ahmadinejad said, "Regional states are friends and brothers to each other and cooperation is the best guarantee for security of the region; the countries can build security by helping each other adding that regional countries are against foreign interference."
On Iran-Russia relations, Ahmadinejad said Tehran-Moscow ties are friendly and growing.
"And we are interested in further expansion of the relations; and as far as nuclear issue is concerned, we are ready to act within framework of the International Atomic Energy Agency's regulations." To a question on dispute between Armenia and Azerbaijan, Ahmadinejad said, "We are for peace, tranquility and spirituality; the rights of both sides should be respected."
Elsewhere in the interview, Ahmadinejad said Iran is mulling inauguration of an oil exchange market and details of the plan will soon be unveiled to the public.
Ahmadinejad hailed people of Azerbaijan, saying they are "important" human beings.
