Addressing thousands of Tehrani worshipers at Tehran University Campus, Rafsanjani said it is a grave mistake to confront a nation that has proved throughout history it is capable of defending its rights mightily.”

According to IRNA Political Desk reporter, the Leadership Experts Council Speaker emphasized that the West would one day realize how big a mistake it has made, adding, “They wasted a whole year’s time, after which they proposed illogical conditions.”

The substitute Friday prayer leader of Tehran emphasized, “If those conditions had not been proposed, and the talks would have resumed, the entire remaining problems would have been solved during that same year.”

Addressing the Western countries, he reiterated, “Now a gate has been opened for resuming the negotiations after the loss of that whole year, so you had better end efforts aimed at imposing your demands, and let the two sides continue their talks amid logical and peaceful conditions from equal stands, so that the truth would prevail.”

Rafsanjani reiterated, “Results of oppressive moves are temporary, while their aftermaths are for ever.”
He emphasized, “No single issue has remained ambiguous today regarding Iran’s nuclear program, and we are now ready to further clarify the matter regarding any of their other unjust claims.”

This week’s preacher of Tehran considered Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities as another manifestation of the unjust oppression against Islamic Iran, adding, “It was quite unjust to forward our nuclear dossier to the UN Security Council, under such conditions that we had voluntarily accepted to abide by the Additional Protocol of the nuclear non proliferation treat (NPT), so that the IAEA would remain the body in charge of our dossier.”

The former Iranian president emphasized, “Although we had been mistreated, Iran accepted to resume serious cooperation with the agency and to clarify regarding the entire matters that are referred to as ambiguities, and yet the threats and intimidation are still polluting he propagation atmosphere.”

Hashemi Rafsanjani said, “Under such conditions that we open the path, answer the entire questions, and continue legal cooperation, the West continues threatening and intimidating us parallel with our moves.”
