President: Iran calls for unconditional fuel swap for Tehran reactor

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Feb 23, IRNA -- President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Tuesday that Iran has offered unconditional fuel swap with the US, Russia and France for Tehran medical reactor.

President Ahmadinejad made the remarks to crowds of enthusiastic people in Birjand in Southern Khorasan.

"These countries have set some terms for fuel swap with Iran, proving that the global arrogance is still cherishing its own dreams in this respect."

"You should observe behavior of western countries consistent with the Iranian nuclear program. They possess stockpiling of nuclear bombs and have the whole world within range of their missiles," he said.

“Unfortunately, in our region the criminal Zionist regime, which has not signed Non-Proliferation Treaty, stockpiled nuclear warheads and won support of its western allies. But, they express concern about Iranian nuclear program designed for civilian utility of nuclear energy.”

Western countries claim they have evidences that Iran will be able to produce nuclear bomb within coming years, said the Iranian president.

"You, yourselves possess thousands of nuclear bombs but are concerned a country may find access to a single bomb! Therefore, there are two options; one is that your bombs are useless or you are telling lie."

The world people are well aware of your lies and fabricated news, you have ten thousand nuclear bombs and the whole world should be concerned about you, said the president.

“Once again I strongly express that Iran is not to find access to nuclear bomb, our people who have strongly confronted your ill-wishes are the real bombs.”

He said, "With God’s grace, Iran is to powerfully make advances to acquire technology for enrichment of uranium for its nuclear sites, and the enemies will not be able to halt Iran’s progress and development."

The Courage and resistance of Iranian nation will finally bring the global arrogance to its knees, said President Ahmadinejad.

Western powers seek to sell their weapons and arsenals and trample upon the rights of nations through a variety of conspiracies, he said.

Iran’s relations with its neighbors is very good and will become much better in the future, he said.

“If you stretch your hand to Iran for sincere friendship Iran welcomes it but the country will cut off hands of those who seek to threaten the Iranian nation,” he said.

Western countries try to provoke the Zionist regime to target its neighboring states, underlined the Iranian president.

“I talked to the neighbors of the Zionist regime and closely studied the situation and they voiced readiness to deal with it,” he said.

“I advised them to get ready and mobilize their forces to make the Zionists avoid temptation and not to commit mistake but if they once again commit such a grave mistake, it will be very costly to them,” underlined the Iranian president.

President Ahmadinejad said that the Zionists and western powers are well aware that they can not fight with Iran.
