Reuters: Iran will never abandon nuclear work: Khamenei
Iran’s highest authority, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said on Monday Tehran would not give up its development of nuclear technology in the face of Western pressure, state media reported.
“The Iranian nation surely will not abandon its right and Iranian officials have no right to deprive the nation of its right,” Khamenei was quoted as saying on the occasion of the Shi’ite Muslim feast of Eid al-Ghadir.
Khamenei, who was shown on television addressing visiting clerics from the holy city of Qom, was making his first public appearance since rumors appeared on Web sites on Thursday that he had died. Iran last week denied the reports.
Khamenei has the final say on all state matters in the Islamic Republic, including the nuclear standoff with the West.
Of course NOT. Iran’s Mullahs COVET a nuclear weapon.
The Mullahs like Khamenei and Ahmadinejad have been consistent over many years.
Israel and the United States will not wait much longer.
And some consider war imminent.
