Ahmadinejad: No Need for Atomic Bombs

Service : Politic
TEHRAN, July 6 (ICANA) – Iran's power comes from the home-grown nature of its achievements and it, thus, is needless of atomic bombs, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said, stressing that the world powers are at loggerheads with Iran not due to their nuclear differences with Tehran, but because of the indigenous nature of Iran's progress.

Ahmadinejad: No Need for Atomic Bombs

"As far as the nuclear issue is concerned, what they (the westerners) fear is Iran's ability and determination that drove us into this (nuclear) path," Ahmadinejad said, addressing at a ceremony held to inaugurate Iran's highest concrete dam, Karoun 4, in the Western province of Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari on Wednesday.

"We don't need to build (atomic) bombs. Bombs are for retarded people," the Iranian president noted, adding that Iran is at the peak of self-reliance.

The president further called for the further strengthening of the Iranian nation's resolve and self-confidence.

Iranian officials have always underscored Iran's firm and steadfast opposition to the possession, production and use of the nuclear weapons.

The US-led West accuses Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons under the cover of a civilian nuclear program, while they have never presented any corroborative evidence to substantiate their allegations. Iran denies the charges and insists that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only.

Tehran stresses that the country has always pursued a civilian path to provide power to the growing number of Iranian population, whose fossil fuel would eventually run dry.

Despite the rules enshrined in the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) entitling every member state, including Iran, to the right of uranium enrichment, Tehran is now under four rounds of UN Security Council sanctions for turning down West's calls to give up its right of uranium enrichment.

Tehran has dismissed West's demands as politically tainted and illogical, stressing that sanctions and pressures merely consolidate Iranians' national resolve to continue the path.

Political observers believe that the United States has remained at loggerheads with Iran mainly over the independent and home-grown nature of Tehran's nuclear technology, which gives the Islamic Republic the potential to turn into a world power and a role model for other third-world countries.
