Cleric: Iran not to Yield to US Pressure

TEHRAN (FNA)- Tehran's Provisional Friday Prayers Leader Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami stressed that the Iranian nation will never yield to the pressures imposed on Tehran by the US and the West.

"Iranian nation will never submit to the US' old hues and cry, firmly insisting on its absolute nuclear rights and being resolved to give decisive response to foolish and maniacal moves of the enemy of the system," Ayatollah Khatami said, addressing a large and fervent congregation of people on Tehran University campus.

Congratulating the National Day of Nuclear Technology, Ayatollah Khatami said Iranian nation will slap enemies of the system, who speak to the country with the language of threat and intimidation, strongly in the face.

"If enemy takes any measure out of foolishness and wants to threaten the country in action, the Iranian nation will give a strong response to its lunatic move and send them deep into quagmire," Ayatollah Khatami warned.

He went on to say that Iranian nation does not seek nuclear arms; this is not because it fears and scared of the enemies of the system; rather it is because Islam does not give such a permission.

The cleric further noted that nuclear energy, which has medical and agricultural applications and is also used for energy generation, is the absolute right of the Iranian nation and it will not back down even one iota from its rights and is resolved to stand firm.
