Speaking in the sidelines of a new Tehran rail road inauguration, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said "Today there are a number inside the country who complete the enemy’s chain of schemes. They rather act as a fifth column.”
He added "During the Holy War there were a number of people in the country that acted as the fifth column. In the same way, today there are some who complement the enemy’s chain of schemes. Their only difference from the wartime fifth column is that they shout revolutionary mottos as well.”
"A large number of individuals had a lot of cooperation with the enemies in their plans. We do not intend, though, to say who accompanied the enemy and created pressure on the market in different sections including currency and gold coin. They had planned to challenge the whole firmness, greatness, and huge measures carried out by this great nation.” the President stated.
