Iran threatens to withdraw from the cooperation with West, worse take an action
APRIL 10: Iranian President Ahmadinejad, on Monday, categorically warned the world powers that they should not try to act as hurdles to Iran's nuclear drive. He said if West tries to do so it will result in the change of our relations and cooperation with International Atomic Energy Agency, the United Nations nuclear monitoring entity. He also talked about the cooperation which Iran receives from Islamic republic, on its Atomic program and said that they will defend it to the end.
The large industrial plant under construction at Natanz is roughly half the size of the Pentagon. Inspectors say Iran is constructing 3,000 centrifuges.
"The great Iranian nation, which for past centuries has been a pioneer of science, will not allow some one bullying and great nations to put obstacles in its path of progress by influencing the international community," he said in a speech.
Ayatollah Khomeini also reiterated the importance of their nuclear program for Iranians and added that it was more important than the nationalization of oil in 1958, which holds a great pride for most Iranians.
‚??Until today, what we have done has been in accordance with the international regulations,‚?? he said in a nationwide address observing the first day of the Persian New Year on March 21. ‚??But if they take illegal actions, we too can take illegal actions and will do so.‚??
However, it was not clear as how serious Iran‚??s was to reduce further its cooperation with inspectors. Khomeini, who has the final word on state matters, warned last month after the Security Council resolution was passed, saying Iran would strike back against any threats or violence.
Western diplomats and nuclear experts expressed disbelief for the fuss created by Iran and said that it was just a political exhibition and had little to do with the issue of their technical progress. While reporters were invited to main nuclear complex at Natanz, they were not shown any evidence that enrichment of uranium, the step needed to make reactor fuel or bomb fuel, was under way.
President of the Institute for Science and International Security in Washington and a former United Nations weapons inspector David Albright, in a statement said that Iran for the moment seemed more interested in scoring diplomatic points than in making technical advances. He also added that such enrichment ‚??would escalate the confrontation‚??, adding, ‚??It raises all kinds of worst-case scenarios that, if not managed correctly, could escalate up to a military action.‚??
