Ilam, Dec 5, IRNA
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Wednesday that the recent report issued by the US National Intelligence Estimates (NIE) proves the legitimacy of Iran and is a victory for the Iranian nation.
NIE has admitted that Iran does not intend to produce nuclear weapons.
Today is the day of victory for the Iranian nation and thank God all plots hatched by the enemies of Iran have been failed, said the president to a large group of local people in Ilam.
The pride of the enemies will never let them confess to their mistakes, he said.
They should be well-aware that the Iranian nation has chosen its path and will never give up even one iota and is to continue it under the wise guidance of its Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and through vigilance, unity and resistance.
In its nuclear stand-off, the Iranian nation realized that any withdrawal in political field would be the last one and if it gave up even one iota they will continue their threats until depriving the nation of its legitimate rights, said the president.
President Ahmadinejad arrived in this western city Wednesday morning beginning his third provincial tour.
Ahmadinejad started the second round of his provincial tours on November 7 aimed at following up the implementation of the projects which had been approved during the first round of his visits to different provinces last year.
During his three-day stay in this western province, the chief executive is scheduled to chair a cabinet session and attend various working groups.
The president took the initiative to visit different provinces since he took office in 2005 in order to bring closer the government to ordinary people.
