Speaking at the inauguration ceremony for a Tehran railway project, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said "Some enemy has thrown a stone on the nation’s path. It must be passed.”
"I do not like to talk about the nuclear negotiations. They themselves are responsible and know what to do. It is none of my business and I make no interference, but I believe that Iran must be built and that capacities for building Iran are unlimited. That is something which needs care and devotion.”
This is the first time that the Iranian President withdraws the government from the nuclear issue to lay the responsibility on others.
Meanwhile figures such as Aliakbar Velayati, consultant to the Supreme Leader, have stated in electoral debates on TV that the nuclear negotiations have been a failure.
