Tehran Friday preacher Kazem Seddiqi pointed to the Iranian nuclear negotiations which are underway on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, saying "Our word is the same spoken by the nation, from minor to adult, urban to provincial, for years, saying that the nuclear energy is our unalienable right.”
The clergyman added "Negotiations are a proof to our logicality. They are an ultimatum for the world to know that we have talk to talk. Therefore we continue the negotiations, of course at the peak of pride and with full stoutness; as our dear leader said in the beginning that we do not trust the other side.”
Asserting that the talks serve only transparency for the world, he stated "Our rivals do not understand good sense. They are violators. They are traitors and liars. They are egoistic and believe in no room for others. They do not believe in God and are not bound to international regulations. To stand against such a source of corruption the only way is resistance and no more.”
In the nuclear talks, Iran’s red lines have to be observed. The heavy water issue is not subject to change, he maintained.
"As for the continuation of the enrichment there is the same story,” he said, adding "The enemy must not define our needs. The SWUs mentioned by the Supreme Leader have to be considered. We decide for ourselves within international legal frameworks,” he stated.
Seddiqi asserted "The enemy has no right to tell us what we want and what we don’t. So, giving right to the enemy shows naivety.”
Victory is for the one who resists, exactly the same way that we proved in the war. Resistance does miracle and opens the locked doors, the preacher said.
