Ahmadinejad: Hue and cry on Iran's nuclear issue politically motivated
IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency
Doha, Dec 3, IRNA
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said here Monday that hue and cry on Iran's nuclear issue are merely politically motivated and a propaganda campaign.
"The US and certain European states have brought disgrace for international organizations, the UN Security Council in particular," Ahmadinejad told the Arab League Chief Amr Moussa in a meeting on the sidelines of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council, which opened here on Monday.
President Ahmadinejad said, "Today, they have understood that their pressures and threats do not have the mere effect on Iranian nation and they are only worried about their own fame."
Stressing all countries' right for access to peaceful nuclear energy, Ahmadinejad said, "The Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to help other regional states in getting access and using peaceful nuclear energy under the IAEA supervision."
Elsewhere in his remarks, Ahmadinejad said pressures of the enemy, the US particularly, on regional nations would work only through tension and intimidation. This speaks to innate nature of the Zionist regime of Israel, he added.
He said unity among Muslim states would be the first and foremost step in campaign against occupying regime of Quds.
"Enemies always use certain difference of opinion among certain Muslim states in their own favor," he added.
The president said Muslim states should be powerful and developed.
"United, independent and powerful is Iran's demand," he added.
He said Iran is ready for all-out cooperation with all regional states.
"Iran and the Arab League can have growing ties," he declared.
Moussa for his part stressed Iran-AL cooperation and said the League is ready to solve problems in the region and the world of Islam, including Palestine.
