Tehran, Iran (AHN) - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday said his country is ready to push the button to start the full production of nuclear fuel for industrial uses.
Speaking at a public gathering in Gatvand, Khuzestan province in Iran, Ahmadinejad said, "Iran has access to full nuclear fuel cycle and we will soon push the button on nuclear fuel production for industrial uses. The Iranians are determined to achieve peaks of success and defend its interests powerfully."
The president said every country in the world has the right to peaceful nuclear technology and Iranians "call for nothing but their rights."
He adds, "The bullying powers are seeking hegemony over the whole world and they should give up in the face of the Iranian people and officially recognize our rights."
Ahmadinejad issued the statement as his government continues to reject the U.N. Security Council Resolution 1737 adopted on December 23, 2006 which imposes sanctions against Tehran for its refusal to suspend its uranium enrichment program.
Uranium enrichment at low levels can be used to produce fuel to generate electricity but at higher levels can be used to make atomic bombs. Iran has already claimed that it has enriched uranium to levels of around five percent.
Deputy Foreign Minister Mehdi Mostafavi said in December that Iran's first step toward producing nuclear fuel on industrial scale would begin during the Ten-Day Dawn celebrations in February.
It is so "empowering" to be a real journalist and take words out of context it is cool. I can see why all the ivy leaque trained journalist enjoy it so much.In my opinion only.
I guess I don't understand your comment unless you are referring to the 'push the button' part of the title. If so, that was added by the poster and was not a part of the original headline.
I watched a documentary yesterday that showed a French TV news announcement that the reactor was completed in Iraq.
The next day, the IAF destroyed it with 16 bombs carried by 8 F16 aircraft.
Couple this with today's news of a second carrier battle group steaming towards the Gulf region. Coinkydink? I don't think so.....I wonder how long it will be before Iran realizes they are surrounded?
