TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iran will stand by its right to obtain nuclear technology and anyone spreading propaganda against its atomic program will come to regret it, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Monday.
“No one can take away our nuclear technology. The Iranian nation has obtained it and will preserve it. Some are against the Iranian nation’s development,” he said in a televised address to mark the start of the Iranian year on March 21….
Ahmadinejad said Iran would resist efforts to undermine its nuclear program just as it pursued the nationalization of its oil industry last century against the wishes of Western powers
“A while ago, they were against the nationalization of our oil industry. They were saying that this (oil) smelt bad and is useless and you don’t need it. That day the Iranian nation resisted, and today they are saying the same things about nuclear energy,” he said.
“The Iranian nation will resist with God’s help,” he added.
Iran had previously agreed to suspend its uranium enrichment activities under an agreement with Britain, France and Germany. That deal broke down last year and, in February, Iran started tests on enriching uranium.
“They were hoping through propaganda and psychological war to take this (nuclear technology) away from us. I am suggesting to them to learn their lesson and apologize to the Iranian nation,” he said.
