Ahmadinejad rejects U.S. allegations on nuclear weapons
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said his country does not need nuclear weapons to "cut the hands" of the United States, and can achieve their goals by peaceful means, thus repudiating claims about its nuclear program.
"Our nation can achieve success through reflection, its rich culture and prudence," Ahmadinejad said in criticizing Washington and its allies, who use an assembly of unfounded allegations against the Islamic Republic.
The president spoke before the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reports accusing Tehran of having planned nuclear weapons, something the country's government vehemently denies.
"The U.S. administration looks for prosperity by driving other countries to poverty, plundering their riches," Ahmadinejad accused.
The Persian President warned that Washington "will certainly regret any firm response" to the country if the United States and Israel go ahead further with any type of military action against Tehran, as has been announced recently in the media.
Ahmadinejad also took the occasion to rebuke the IAEA director general, Japanese Yukiya Amano, for being "a puppet" of the White House, challenging him to bring accurate and reliable information about the nuclear activities of Iran, a signatory to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty.
The report was classified by the government of the Asian country as "ridiculous and contrived," considering it more as a "repetition of unfounded accusations by the United States and the Zionists."
The president also affirmed that the administration of Barack Obama "arrogantly accuses Iran of producing nuclear bombs while it has more than five thousand atomic products, which demonstrates the lack of U.S. commitment to nuclear disarmament," he noted.
"The United States this year earmarked about $81 billion to modernize its nuclear weapons, while the annual budget for nuclear research in Iran is 250 million dollars," said Ahmadinejad.
The Iranian Parliamentary Commission for National Security and Foreign Policy also criticized the threat of military attack by the United States and Israel and speculation about Iran's nuclear program.
Ed. According to reliable sources quoted in Russia, the so-called nuclear weapons scientist cited as helping Iran's weapons program is NOT a nuclear weapons scientist at all. The Ukrainian, Vyacheslav Danilenko, has NEVER worked on nuclear weapons, but is one of the top specialists in the world in the production of nanodiamonds.
Danilenko worked in an Institute that specialized in the synthesis of diamonds. Iran has a program to develop its nanotechnology sector, with one major focus being nanodiamonds.
This is the latest to come out exposing the utter fabrication that the IAEA report is. If they talk about this report a thousand times, are people going to hear all of the evidence pointing to all the holes in this obvious lie or will they believe it because it has been beaten to death by the western corporate media?
So there you go, the stinking warmonger genocidal demons in the west are caught lying again and guess who supplied the false information? That's right, none other than Israel.
