Senior Cleric: Iranian Nation's Vigilance to Foil Enemy Plots

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Iranian nation has thwarted the western countries' plots all throughout the history of the Islamic Republic through its vigilance and obedience to the Supreme Leader, and it will continue the same path in future, Tehran's provisional Friday Prayers Leader Hojjatoleslam Kazzem Sediqi underscored on Saturday.

"The Islamic Revolution of Iran has had many enemies since its victory, who have hatched different plots to attain their ominous goals," Sediqi said in Karaj city near Tehran today.

"But, the Iranian nation's vigilance, awareness and leader-centeredness (in thoughts and action) has always caused the enemies' plots to backfire and make them face a big defeat," he added.

Washington and its Western allies accuse 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 and the unilateral western embargos 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.

Tehran has repeatedly said that it considers its nuclear case closed as it has come clean of IAEA's questions and suspicions about its past nuclear activities.

A 2008 report of the IAEA by the then Director-General, Mohamed ElBaradei, thanked Iran's honest cooperation in removing ambiguities about its past activities and confirmed that Iran has answered all the six outstanding questions of the world body about the nuclear material and activities that it had had in the past.
