Eslamabad-e Gharb, Kermanshah Prov., Dec 21, IRNA-President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Thursday derided US President George W. Bush for his accusations against Iran.
Addressing a huge crowd in the city of Eslamabad-e Gharb in this western province, he said "We would like US president to send half an hour message every day to see reaction."
President Bush had called on Iranians not to go to polls in the parliamentary election last year, but to no avail.
Referring to Bush threats on imposing sanctions and isolating the Islamic Republic of Iran on nuclear program, he said, "You have been isolated in the world and if you do not believe it you and UK Prime Minister Tony Blair could arrange a trip to other countries to see how the world nations would welcome you."
Peaceful application of nuclear technology is legitimate right of our nation, he said adding that it is not clear whether the US and Britain do not really know or do not want to recognize Iranian rights, adding that they think they can create rift among the nation through such words but they do not know that our determined nation are united to defend their legitimate rights.
"It is 27 years that the US and Britain have stood against our nation to stop national progress but they failed."
Saddam's defeat during eight years of imposed war (1980-1988) is a good example to the US hostility to Iranian nation, he pointed out.
"Big powers cannot tolerate our development and progress," the president said.
President Ahmadinejad, accompanied by members of his cabinet, arrived in Kermanshah Tuesday for a three-day visit.
His current visit is his 23rd to various provinces of the country since the start of his initiative of bringing the government closer to the people.
He and members of his cabinet will hold a session in Kermanshah city later in the day to discuss the province's problems before they return to Tehran.
