President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said here Sunday that the "great" decision made by the Iranian nation on access to peaceful nuclear technology is "final".

President Ahmadinejad made the remark while awarding 14 Iranian experts in the field of peaceful nuclear technology.

"Enemies of the Iranian nation should know that this path (chosen by the Iranians) is irreversible.

"Today, the Iranian nation unanimously insists on its inalienable right and will not accept claims that science and technology are good for some people and bad for others because they might be diverted from (peaceful) nuclear use," he said.

He added, "The path of progress and development of the Iranian nation is not limited to nuclear energy and includes all fields.

"The Iranian people and government believe they are able to settle their problems and can conquer peaks of progress and growth through major strides."

Ahmadinejad stressed, "The Iranian nation can be the best in science, technology, art, economy, politics, culture and all other fields. Our youth are more competent to have access to technology than those who are just after their own greed."

He addressed the bullying powers and said, "You have killed or wounded thousands of people in our neighboring states by using weakened uranium weapons. You should change your attitude." The president said, "Those who have nuclear weapons are not competent to possess such weapons. They should abandon the path of nuclear technology.

"Today, you are producing the third and fourth generation nuclear weapons but if you were competent, you would not boast of it.

"Iran's enemies follow up two goals which include preventing its progress in all fields to make it dependent on foreigners and break the firm determination of the Iranian nation.

"They do not want to admit that there is a nation who has resisted against the bullying powers and conquered the peaks of progress."
