Omid satellite shows Iran continues its path despite pressures: Larijani

TEHRAN, Feb. 06 (ISNA)-Iran's Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said some countries' reactions on the launch of Iran's Omid satellite show their disagreement with Tehran's efforts for progress.

Speaking at the 10th Ibn Sina educational and research festival in Tehran, Larijani said nuclear technology and Omid Satellite are great progresses which are not easily made by developing countries.

Canadian Foreign Minister Lawrence Cannon claimed the international community is deeply concerned that Iran will apply this satellite technology to its missile programs, also German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier has called the launch a "worrying development."

Omid communications satellite was launched into space upon President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's order on Tuesday and was successfully placed in the low Earth orbit by the domestic satellite-carrier Safir 2.

These countries are fully aware that Iran is not going to pursue nuclear bombs, although during talks they said Iran may seek nuclear bomb one day, "I think they are not worried about bombs" but about the change in regional balance due to Iran's efforts for achieving technology and science, Larijani said.

"These double standards made many troubles both for them and for us, but Iran has kept on its way in spite of all obstacles and pressures," Larijani added.

Also he delivered a speech on a ceremony for the 30th year of Islamic Revolution victory in the city of Qom and said the launch of the locally-made satellite made it clear that Iran is showing its genius on advanced technologies and continues its path, he added.

Elsewhere, he moved to Iran's current nuclear developments and said during the early days of Islamic revolution Western countries called off their nuclear technology agreements with Iran for building Bushehr nuclear power plant.

They left no choice for Iran and it had to stand on its feet, so it could gradually get access to different domains of nuclear technology, he added.
