Saturday, October 20, 2007

Senior Iranian cleric says Tehran will continue its peaceful nuclear program thanks to the indigenous nuclear technology.

"Westerners aim to block Iran's access to peaceful nuclear technology on baseless pretexts, while they themselves were involved in Iran's nuclear programs before the victory of the Islamic Revolution", the Chairman of the Expediency Council Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani said.

The former Iranian president said that Iran would not be intimidated by Western clamor and would go ahead with its peaceful nuclear programs.

The EC Chief also referred to the historical background, geopolitical situation and rich resources of energy available in the country as significant characteristics of Iran and stated, "we will show the true picture of the Islamic System by thwarting the enemies' false propaganda efforts."
