Tehran, Iran, Jan. 18 – Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei vowed on Wednesday that the Islamic Republic would never abandon its nuclear activities despite the looming threat of United Nations Security Council referral.

In a meeting in Tehran with Tajikistani President Imomali Rakhmonov, which was also attended by hard-line Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Khamenei said, “Obtaining nuclear expertise is one of the indicators of the progress by Iranian scientists over which there has been a lot of uproar. The main reason for the West’s commotion over the issue is that our country’s young scientists have the ability to obtain this advanced technology domestically”, the state-run ISNA news agency reported.

“The Islamic Republic, relying on its principles and without any fear of this uproar, will continue on its path of technological advancements. The world cannot effect the will of the Iranian nation”, the Supreme Leader said.

France, Germany, and the United Kingdom – the EU-3 – are lobbying the 35 member states of the International Atomic Energy Agency’s board of governors to refer Tehran’s nuclear file to the UN Security Council at the upcoming February 2-3 emergency session after Iran breached an agreement between them in which it had promised not to resume nuclear activities at its uranium enrichment facility in Natanz.

IAEA director general Mohamed ElBaradei has called on Iran to suspend the activities, but Tehran has officially rejected such an action.
