Tehran, Aug 28, IRNA
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said here Tuesday that from Tehran's point of view Iran's nuclear case is closed.
"I announce officially that from our point of view Iran's nuclear case has been closed," said President Ahmadinejad in a ress conference.
President Ahmadinejad said that all those, who used their influence in the world decision making centers to force the Iranian nation to retreat, have now realized their mistake.
"Those thinking that by diplomatic and discriminatory gestures and by abusing their power in the world decision making bodies, they could force the Iranian nation to withdraw from its position, have today come to the conclusion that their path has been wrong," announced the president.
He added, "Of course, they made a lot of mistake. They did not recognize the Iranian nation and did not know how to face a nation with an ancient history, rich culture and faith, strong bonds and unprecedented national and religious solidarity."
He went on to say, "They did not know that they are facing a brave, wise and courageous nation. Since their ideology was materialistic and since they relied on a financial power, their evaluation and comparison was based on a number of missiles, planes, tanks and bank accounts.
"They do not however know that culture of a nation, faith of a nation, and the ideology and solidarity of a nation form an invincible force."
Elsewhere in his remarks, the President said that all nuclear activities of Iran are within framework of the law and within the boundary of its rights. "The Iranian nation has not demanded even one iota beyond its legal rights," he announced.
He said that peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear activities has become evident to all.
"It has now become clear that the activities of the Iranian nation are peaceful and in line with the IAEA regulations and that the Iranian nation has always had close cooperation with the Agency.
The Iranian nation's cooperation with the IAEA is unprecedented. There is not even one in more than 140 IAEA members who might have so extensive cooperation and collaboration with the Agency like Iran," added the president.
