The Leader Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei in his address to the inauguration ceremony of 16th Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit in Tehran condemned the efforts made by a few world powers to monopolize the civilian nuclear technology, while they are the only ones which have made use of the nuclear weapons.
The Leader Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei noted the world powers’ misuse of the nuclear weapons, and called for denuclearization, underlining that nuclear weapons cannot “guarantee the security of any world country”.
“Nuclear weapons can neither guarantee anyone’s security nor strengthen the power of any world state, rather they are a threat to both of these,”Supreme Leader said.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran condemns use of nuclear and chemical weapons and the like as an unforgiveable sin, and we have raised the slogan of a ‘Middle-East Free from Nuclear Weapons’ and we are committed to it,” The Leader Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei reiterated.
“But, this does not mean ignoring the right to the peaceful nuclear energy and nuclear fuel production. According to the international rules, use of the civilian nuclear technology is the right of all the world countries. Everyone should be entitled to make use of this safe energy for various vital purposes for their country and nation and should not depend on others for putting this right into effect,” the Supreme Leader said.
The Leader Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei further blasted the western powers for using nuclear weapons. “A few western countries which possess nuclear weapons themselves and have embarked on this illegal action (possession of the nuclear weapons), intend to keep monopolizing the ability to produce nuclear fuel,” he said.
“A stealthy move has started to bring production and sales of nuclear fuel to centers under international titles, but actually under the claws of a few western countries to keep it there forever,” the Leader of Islamic Ummah warned.
“The bitter sarcasm of our time is that the US administration, which has the most and most lethal nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction and is the only one which has committed utilizing them, wants today to raise and bear the flag of opposition to nuclear proliferation,” The Leader Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei continued.
“They and their western partners have equipped the usurper Zionist regime with nuclear weapons and posed a big threat to this sensitive region, while this very deceitful collection (of countries) do not stand the peaceful use of the nuclear energy for independent nations and use all their possibilities to clash with the production of nuclear fuel for radiomedicines and other peaceful humanitarian uses,” the Supreme Leader said.
The Leader Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said Iran’s enemies “know well that they are lying about the Islamic Republic” of Iran’s nuclear intentions.
To prove the untruthful nature of the US and its allies, the Islamic Ummah Leader said those who possess nuclear weapons and threaten other nations with these weapons in the 21st century would never feel embarrassed to utter lies about other countries.
“I emphasize that the Islamic Republic of Iran never intends access to the nuclear weapons, but meantime, it will not ignore its right to access the civilian nuclear technology.”
“Our country’s motto is nuclear technology for all, and nuclear weapons for no one,” The Leader Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei, and added, “We will insist on both these statements and we know that breaking the monopoly of a few western countries on the nuclear energy production within the framework of the Non-Proliferation Treaty would be beneficial to all independent countries, including the NAM member states.”
