Iran will ignore pressure to halt its atomic work, its president said on Friday, hours before the world’s nuclear watchdog was expected to confirm that Tehran has flouted U.N. Security Council demands.

“Those who want to prevent Iranians from obtaining their right, should know that we do not give a damn about such resolutions,” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told a rally in northwest Iran, the official IRNA news agency reported.

As expected.

Iran, the Mullahs and President Ahamdinejad have been very consistent in their positions on uranium enrichment.

International Atomic Energy Agency chief Mohamed ElBaradei was likely to report later in the day that Iran has refused to stop enriching uranium and is stalling IAEA inquiries, in defiance of demands set by the Security Council a month ago.

“Enemies think that by … threatening us, launching psychological warfare or … imposing embargoes they can dissuade our nation from obtaining nuclear technology,” Ahmadinejad said

This week Iran vowed to hit U.S. targets worldwide if attacked by Washington, which has not ruled out military options if diplomacy fails to halt what it says is Tehran’s quest for nuclear weapons. Iran says its program is purely civilian.

Iran’s U.N. envoy said on Thursday Tehran would not heed any Security Council resolution to rein in its nuclear work, on the grounds that this posed no threat to world peace and security.

“If the Security Council decides to take decisions that are not within its competence, then Iran does not feel obliged to obey,” Iranian Ambassador Javad Zarif told reporters.

The world awaits the IAEA report later in the day.

There will be NO SURPRISES in the report.

The United States will attempt to meet with the Big Five (Security Council members) on May 9 before it pursues a Chapter 7 Resolution in the Security Council.
