President: Iran's nuclear success due to people's role

Tehran, May 25, IRNA
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that the attempts of some big powers to prevent Iran's access to nuclear technology for peaceful purposes actually emanates from their fear to acknowledge the independence of the Iranian nation and its role as a model for other nations.
Speaking at a meeting with members of Chekad Azadandishan Coalition, he added, "This is mainly because Iran's achievements in all fields further motivates the vigilance of the world free and independent nations, which eventually will lead to the downfall of the global arrogance."
According to a report released by the Media Department of the Presidential Office on Thursday, the chief executive said that these powers have no anxiety about Iran's access to nuclear weapons.
Stressing that nuclear weapons never convert any country into a superpower, he said that accordingly the ability to affect the global and international equations does not make a country a world power.
"Today, as a consequence of Iran's achievement in accessing nuclear technology for peaceful use some international equations have changed and Iran has changed into a decisive power," he said.
Ahmadinejad said that Iran's success in the nuclear field is owing to the prominent role of Iranian people and added that its fruitful results belong to all world freedom-seeking nations.
The president said that materialization of justice in its Islamic concept is distinct from its Marxist or Liberalist equivalent.
"In the Islamic sense, justice indicates providing the opportunity for the growth and elevation of all human beings. It does not mean that the government should administer all the current affairs. Efforts should, therefore, be made to encourage people to play a major role in all domains," added the president.
The Chekad Azadandishan Coalition is made of seven parties and institutions.
