TEHRAN (FNA)- Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Saeed Jalili underlined that the United States' confrontation policy against the Iranian nation will not affect Tehran's progress.
Speaking in a meeting with visiting Omani Foreign Minister Yusuf bin Alawi bin Abdallah on Wednesday, Jalili reiterated the Islamic Republic of Iran's resolve to make continued progress, and said nothing can change or affect Tehran's determination.
"The United States' approach will not affect this trend and the Iranian nation has prepared itself to make progress in all dimensions with vivacity and strength," he added.
Referring to the possible impact or role of the US President Barack Obama's "change" slogan in the country's foreign policies, Jalili asserted that the untruthfulness of these claims was proved after Washington repeated such behaviors as use of force, militarism and sanctions against other nations.
He also pointed to the Tuesday terrorist attack on a nuclear physics scientist and university lecturer and put the blame on the US and its hirelings in Iran.
Resorting to terrorist attacks indicates the decline in the United States' power in confronting the Iranian nation, he said.
Iranian university professor and nuclear scientist Masoud Ali Mohammadi was assassinated in a terrorist bomb attack in northern Tehran Tuesday morning.
The London-based armed opposition of the Islamic Republic, the Kingdom Association, in a statement claimed responsibility for the attack.
