IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Feb 11, IRNA -- President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Thursday reaffirmed Iranian resolve not to produce nuclear bomb because of ideological beliefs, though is capable of doing so.

Addressing large groups of people on the 31st anniversary of Islamic Revolution’s victory, President Ahmadinejad said, “Iranian nation is courageous enough to frankly and without fear acknowledge any plan to produce bomb, but, We renounce such a weapon for ideological reasons. We do not want it because we do not need it.”

He said that if the West thinks nuclear bomb is the only option and resort for salvation, they would better do that themselves.

“Bomb is being made by those not signatory to Non-Proliferation Treaty and nobody supervises them. Bomb is made by those being concerned over their future.”

The President criticized the imperialist powers’ method of managing global affairs.

“We are against your method of ruling over the world, your bullying, your imposition and your plundering. Your management method is discriminatory and inhumane. We are courageous enough to say that. You too should say frankly that wish to dominate the region. In that case, Iranian nation will not let you do so.”

President Ahmadinejad noted that the west is scared of Iran’s achievements in the fields of aerospace, satellite carrier rocket launching, advanced medicine, and nano-technology. “So doing, you will get nowhere.”
