TEHRAN, April 16 (AFP) Apr 16, 2007
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Monday vowed in a public speech that Iran would "resist to the end" in defending its rights over the country's controversial nuclear drive.
"The Iranian people are standing firm until the end on acquiring their right and will not shift an inch," Ahmadinejad said in a speech in the southern city of Shiraz broadcast live on state television.
"The Iranian nation will not be dissuaded in its drive, and the Iranian nation stands united on this," he said.
"On the nuclear issue, the Iranian people will stand firm to acquire all their rights, will continue solidly to reach the summits of perfection and will raise their fists to insist on their rights."All rights reserved. © 2005 Agence France-Presse.
