Tehran, Iran, Jan. 14 – Iran’s former President declared on Friday that the Islamic Republic would drive ahead with its efforts to obtain nuclear capabilities despite the growing international furore over its decision to begin previously-suspended nuclear activities in its uranium enrichment facility in Natanz.

Speaking to a gathering of clerics in the northern province of Gilan, Rafsanjani said that the West’s main reason for its opposition to Iran’s nuclear pursuit was its “colonialist spirit”, the state-run news agency reported.

The West wanted “other countries, especially the Islamic Republic, to be left behind from having modern technology”, Rafsanjani, who presently chairs the State Expediency Council, said.

Rafsanjani said that Tehran had decided to “ignore these threats” and “end up were it wanted to reach”.

The West suspects that Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapons program under the cover of energy production.
