ari, Mazandaran Prov., Dec 1, IRNA -- President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad here on Tuesday warned that Iran will take revenge of the blood of its martyred scientists on global arrogance should assassination of its scientists be repeated.

Addressing a group of families of martyrs and war veterans in this northern Iranian city, Ahmadinejad said, “By God, if such a thing (assassination of Iranian scientists) happens again, we will put each member of the UN Security Council permanent members on trial.”

He reiterated that if assassination of Iranian academics is repeated, Iran will put forward cases relating to the pre-revolution era as well as files of 160,000 war martyrs and 40,000 others who were martyred in different parts of the country, thus putting each UN Security Council permanent members on trial.

“They falsely think that if they take nuclear scientists or other scientists from us, the forward-looking path of Iranian nation will be stopped. This time too they have made a mistake. Under God’s grace, intelligence forces will whole-heartedly guard the scientists.”

“Do you want to hold dialogue this way? Your move showed that you have hostile intentions,” said the president.
