Ahmadinejad: Washington losing nerve
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
The Iranian president says national spirit and self-reliance are rising in the country while on the other hand hegemonic powers' strength and political makeup are falling into disarray.
The stance adopted by US President Barack Obama in recent days was a 'very low-level' one, and showed Washington has “lost its nerve,” IRNA quoted Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as saying late Sunday.
Talking to a host of MPs, the president also touched upon his address at the UN General Assembly, saying Western statesmen are unable to respond to the questions he raised over the 9/11 incident.
The Iranian chief executive reiterated that the sanctions slapped on the Islamic Republic by hegemonic powers are a nonstarter.
President Ahmadinejad underscored the 'oppressors' were of the conviction that they would be able to leave Iran on shaky ground by imposing sanctions, but Iranians have rendered sanctions ineffective with self-reliance.
He further pointed out that those who are corrupt and seek power will finally be pit against justice seekers and the faithful.
President Ahmadinejad also added that the stronger the justice-seekers get, the weaker the oppressors become.
He called for further unity and rapport between the government and parliament, urging lawmakers to delve deeply into the bills and motions they are going to vote on, so that 'more constructive legislations' would be passed.
