Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, seen here in June 2006, vowed Iran would press ahead with its nuclear programme and not back down in the face of international pressure to suspend uranium enrichment.
Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei vowed Iran would press ahead with its nuclear programme and not back down in the face of international pressure to suspend uranium enrichment, state television said.
“Our policy is clear progress proposing transparent logic and insisting on the nation’s rights without backing down,” a news anchor on state television quoted Khamenei as telling a meeting with top officials.
He said that Iran had been right to temporarily suspend uranium enrichment as part of a previous agreement with European countries even though it has now resumed the sensitive nuclear work.
“If we had not experienced that (a suspension), we might have blamed ourselves and said ‘why did we not try that’?”
“But now with steady heart and full confidence we press ahead and nobody can give a good reason that the nuclear path is wrong for the country.”
But, why do the enrichment yourself when Iran can buy the real deal from North Korea?
Or at least purchase enough already enriched uranium and AQ Khan technology to accelerate the enrichment process.
Iran and Khamenei are NOT fooling the world – THEY COVET NUCLEAR WEAPONS.
Iran President Ahmadinejad weighs in: Â “The Iranian nation will continue its path of dignity based on resistance, wisdom and without fear,” Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying.
Stay tuned for United Nations Security Council action by Friday.
