Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei reiterated Saturday that the Islamic republic is not after building nuclear weapons.

He stated that what prevents Iran from seeking a nuclear weapon is not the fear from America, but the religious and Islamic belief which prohibits producing, using, or threatening by these weapons, and rather calls for removing them.

“We believe that nuclear weapons (in the world) must be obliterated, and we do not intend to make nuclear weapons. But if we had decided to possess nuclear weapons, no power could have prevented us.”

He considered that the contradiction in the US statements and acts is an indication to its irrationality, indicating that US President Barack Obama’s speech on preventing Iran from possessing a nuclear weapon is a forgery.

The supreme leader added that Washington’s purpose from negotiating isn’t listening to Iran’s logic which demands lifting the ban imposed on it and halting interference in its affairs, but rather convincing Iran not to possess a peaceful nuclear technology and enrich uranium.

Ayatollah Khamenei referred to the US double standards, saying: “The contradiction between the US Administration’s statements and acts is an indication to Washington’s irrationality,” and clarified that: “The US Administration expects that people will submit to its arrogance and irrational speech, but the powerful Iranian people, which has the logic, will not surrender to this arrogance.”

The Leader stated that Iranian officials must work to set aside differences and resolve domestic problems.

The Leader further pointed to the Iranian nation’s high turnout in the rallies held across the country to mark the 34th anniversary of the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution and said economic problems did not lead to a separation between the people and the Islamic establishment.
