The IR Leader highlighted the recent achievements of the Islamic countries in scientific and technological fields, notably the Islamic Republic of Iran’s access to peaceful nuclear energy, adding “Although the enemies of the Islamic world know that the IRI’s nuclear activities are peaceful by nature, they oppose it because the Iranian nation’s achievement is notable and progressive.”
Ayatollah Khamenei said a permanent seat in the United Nations Security Council should be given to Islamic countries.
