TEHRAN, Feb. 28 (Mehr News Agency) -- Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said here on Sunday that the UN nuclear watchdog should remain impartial in dealing with Iran's nuclear energy program, otherwise it will lose its credibility.
Khamenei met with Iranian ambassadors on Sunday
In a meeting with Iranian ambassadors to foreign
countries, Ayatollah Khamenei stated that the International Atomic Energy Agency
should not give in to pressure from the United States or other countries.
Yet some of the agency's actions and reports show that this international body is not independent, he added.
Khamenei said Iran has always insisted that its
nuclear energy program is being implemented to meet the country's growing demand
for energy, but the U.S., Britain, and the Zionist regime keep spreading lies
about Iran's nuclear program.
However, such lies will eventually backfire, Ayatollah Khamenei noted.
The Supreme Leader stated that Iran has made
great progress in the field of nuclear energy and will eventually become
self-sufficient in this technology.
He praised the country's diplomatic achievements in the face of pressure and lies and said adhering to revolutionary principles is essential for effective diplomacy.
