Chairman of the Expediency Council Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani said on Sunday that the Americans are well aware that Iran renounces nuclear arms in light of the ethical principles enshrined by Islam and their poisonous propaganda campaign against Iran has roots in their arrogant nature.
"The US which has brought Iranian nuclear program to the spotlight is the first country in the world that used nuclear weapon bringing eternal disgrace for itself. So, no other country would do so, because of subsequent disgrace," he said in reference to US nuclear war on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, Japan.
He reaffirmed Iranian commitment to the religious principles and said that the very existence of the Islamic Republic of Iran is on the basis of Islamic values which prohibits nuclear arms.
"Victory of the Islamic Revolution took place in one of the most significant geographical location at a time when the enemies sought to isolate religion."
Underlining the need to safeguard the Islamic Revolution, he said "We should not let political and factional disputes overcome our national and Islamic interests and the people should be confident that their votes would be respected by the government."
Peaceful application of nuclear energy is on Iranian national agenda at this historical juncture, he said adding that Iran is legitimate to use nuclear energy in line with the international conventions, a reference to Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and Safeguards Agreement of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
Many countries are currently conducting research studies on generating electricity from nuclear energy for their next generations, he said adding that the Islamic Republic of Iran benefiting from its native talents should pay due attention to produce nuclear energy.
