Tehran, Aug 26, IRNA
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Saturday said that the enemies had better not bother themselves, given the will of the Iranian nation to make big strides and Iran's determination to hold dialogues and promote peace.
The president made the remark at the inaugural ceremony of a heavy water plant in the central provincial capital of Arak.
The chief executive said that the message of the Iranian nation calls for peace and coexistence, justice and human respect as well as world nations' (including Iran's) access to nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.
"As the representative of the Iranian nation, I am bound to protect the people's rights and will respond to their demands," he added.
Ahmadinejad said that today the Iranians expect to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes and that is all they are asking for.
"The discriminatory approach of some powers to the world is based on their bullying features and given their disregard for ethics, they make instrumental use of their policies, economy, art and
advertisement in their own interests and assume that others act in a similar way," he added.
Turning to the auspicious month of Shaaban as well as the month and year of the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and the happy occasion of implementation of the heavy water plant in Arak, he said that now is the time to benefit from the continuous efforts of Iranian experts in various fields including agriculture and medicine.
"The bullying powers are unable to imagine that a powerful government does not need to bully and be aggressor.
"Neither can they imagine a freedom-loving nation observing ethical norms, being faithful and committed, while at the same time they do not bully others, so that their major goal is perfection and scientific progress," he added.
Ahmadinejad said that they cannot see a nation access nuclear technology, but not nuclear weapons, adding that they can even hardly imagine such a thing and that it is more difficult to accept it.
"If their think-tank comes to wrong conclusions, it is not the fault of others. They should think about peace, security and people's welfare. They should be aware that it is possible to live in peace and security and administer economy and politics based on peace and brotherhood," said the president.
