President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said here Saturday that the Iranian nation insists on its inalienable right to the full nuclear fuel cycle. Ahmadinejad remarks were heard on the last day of a three-day tour of northwestern West Azarbaijan province as he addressed a huge crowd of Shahindej city residents. “With the grace of God, (arrogant) powers cannot prevent the Iranian nation from achieving progress. They are losing prestige,” he said. Addressing the world’s influential powers, particularly the United States and Britain, he said: “You are losing your vantage positions in the world. The anger of nations all over the world on you is increasing.” The president said that countries which say they are against nuclear weapons but maintain weapons arsenals are liars. He noted that countries which de not believe in God are pursuing science, technology, progress and welfare to materialize certain ends, adding that the wars they launched in Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine and African states were meant to promote their own interests. He blasted measures passed by international bodies which seek to bully other nations, the Iranian nation in particular, into giving up their legal rights. President Ahmadinejad ends his visit to this northwestern province today, his 19th to various provinces of the country since the start of his initiative of bringing the government closer to the people. He and members of his cabinet have already visited the provinces of South Khorasan, Sistan-Baluchestan, Ilam, Qom, Hormuzgan, Bushehr, Chahar Mahal and Bakhtiari, Lorestan, Golestan, Kohgilouyeh and Boyer Ahmad, Khorassan Razavi, Zanjan, Markazi, Qazvin, Hamedan, East Azarbaijan, North Khorassan, and Ardebil.
