Islamic revolution in Tehran in this February 11, 2007 file photo. Iran said on Friday no amount of U.N. pressure would deter it from its nuclear program, a day after major powers agreed a plan to impose new sanctions
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad refused again on Friday to stop sensitive nuclear work and prepared to confront the UN Security Council face to face over a proposal for wider sanctions against Iran.
“The Iranian nation possesses the nuclear fuel cycle and will not go back on that,” he told a rally in central Yazd province, cited by the semi-official Fars news agency.
“Don’t think you can block the Iranian nation’s pathway with these sittings and meetings,” Ahmadinejad told world powers, which fear Iran’s nuclear programme could be diverted towards weapons development.
“The Iranian nation is moving speedily on the path to progress, and the enemies’ pressures and threats do not affect the nation’s will,” state new agency IRNA quoted him as saying.
The United Nations Security Council and the five permanent members plus Germany have made it clear to Ahmadinejad, the Iranian Mullahs and the Iranian people: you shall NOT possess a nuclear weapon NOR possess the capability of clandestinely producing one.
Ahmadinejad will bellow and bluster at the UN and Iran WILL NOT stop uranium enrichment.
The UNSC will then impose new meaningless sanctions and eventually Israel and the United States will get fed up with the stalling and bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities.
End of story….
