Tehran, Oct 21, IRNA-Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei Friday reiterated Iran's inalienable right to have access to peaceful nuclear energy and said Iranian people will under no circumstances surrender to US bullying and arrogance.
Addressing a huge crowd of Muslim worshipers at the University of Tehran campus, Ayatollah Khamenei stated that Iran will not allow others to decide whether it can make scientific and technological progress or not.
He blasted the United States for its selective approach towards Iran's nuclear activities.
"As far as the question of nuclear energy is concerned, we never aim to make nuclear weapons or deviate our scientific move to development of atomic bombs," stressed the Supreme Leader.
He added, "Our nation will not give up its absolute right (to use nuclear technology peacefully) under any circumstances."
Ayatollah Khamenei said the main adversary in Iran's nuclear case is the US Administration.
"The American statesmen, who claim that Iran is after nuclear weapons, are lying and those, who applaud them are also liars.
"Even when they talk about human rights, they all know that they are lying. The only things that are not important to them are human rights and democracy. Their goal -- domination -- is clear to them. They pay no heed to human rights."
The Supreme Leader said one of the main goals of the US Administration is to create crises at the four corners of the world.
It is a tactical work to divert the public attention from their domestic problems.
He added that the present US Administration is an extremist and belligerent government, which has targeted not only the Middle East but the whole world.
