December 28, 2010 (KATAKAMI / PRESIDENT.IR) — President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said here on Tuesday that the Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to hold talks in Istanbul, Brasilia and Tehran with Group 5+1.
Addressing a gathering of people in the province of Alborz, President Ahmadinejad referred to messages sent by the G5+1 including Britain, the United States, France, Russia, China and Germany and said Tehran welcomes dialogue for cooperation.
Dr.Ahmadinejad added that if they wish to open doors to cooperation, they should respect the Iranian nation’s rights.
Pointing to Iran’s nuclear issue which has gone through ups and downs these years, Dr. Ahmadinejad referred to the fact that Iran has been under intense pressure and various sanctions one after the other to stop its peaceful nuclear activities.
He further said ‘…but the winner of this political contest was the Iranian nation.’
President Ahmadinejad underlined Now, Iran is a nuclear country and they are not capable of preventing it from gaining nuclear energy.
President Ahmadinejad also warned Western countries that Iran would give a “regretting” response to anyone who “intends to prevent the Iranian nation from achieving its rights.”
President further added that world powers have two options in dealing with the Iranian nation, saying they can either go ahead with their previous path of issuing sanctions against the Islamic Republic or interact with the Islamic Republic.
“The result of the first approach is already clear. It is not the right way,” he noted.
President emphasized that cooperation and not confrontation is the only way to resolve Iran’s nuclear energy program.
President Ahmadinejad stressed the importance of recognizing the rights of the Iranian nation to pave the way for cooperation. (*)
