Making the remarks in a ceremony to commemorate the 400 martyrs of Bandar Anzali in north of the country on Monday night, he said that Iran was not, as a principle, in need of any forms of nuclear bombs.
He also stressed that Iran was not a lover of adventurism and never intended to enter wars with any country.
However, the SNSC secretary underlined, Iran needed new sciences, advanced technology and nuclear energy for its infrastructural and construction projects.
Pointing out that the world would never have even thought of seeing Iran as the owner of modern nuclear technology after 25 years of severe sanctions it has been suffering, he expressed that the fact that Iran never hired any foreign expert for its peaceful nuclear projects made a source of concern for the world.
He said Iranian scientists have now made the world admit that Iran is a scientific and technological power.
According to Rowhani, the recent report of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) mentions Iran as the eighth in the list of 13 world countries which are capable of manufacturing equipment needed in producing nuclear fuel.
He further remarked that the Iranian nation would confront any threats and resist any attacks.
