President addressing ceremony marking National Day of Nuclear Technology:
Revolutionary, jihadi management paved way for nuclear achievements/Nuclear industry recognised globally, commercially result of JCPOA/We can achieve greatest victories by domestic solidarity
President Rouhani made a speech in a ceremony marking the 11th anniversary of the National Day of Nuclear Technology on Sunday and said: "Iranian youths' revolutionary and jihadi management paved the way for nuclear achievements".
He added: "We will be able to achieve the greatest victories in the world, the region and inside our country by internal solidarity".
Stating that 42 nuclear projects have borne fruit in the past year, Dr Rouhani also said: "Nuclear technology is a must for the country".
"The Supreme Leader's emphasis on the importance of nuclear technology has been the truth and our national cause," continued the president.
He went on to say: "The Iranian nation's inalienable nuclear rights were established internationally by our country's diplomacy artists".
Our nuclear energy experts carried out technical achievements and diplomats established it globally, said Rouhani, adding: "Our experts and diplomats' efforts in year 1382 lead to US' failure to take Iran's case to the Security Council of the United Nations".
Dr Rouhani added: "They wanted to deprive Iran of nuclear technology but Iran was announced the member of MNA and officially one of the countries having enrichment technology".
The global community admitted Iran's native nuclear power, added Rouhani, "The children of the nation stood up well for the Iranian nation's rights against world powers and established the result of our young scientists".
He continued saying: "Some people said the government had sold the blood of martyrs and the result of the scientists' efforts to eliminate sanctions but our diplomacy men followed the best path for establishing and continuing our nuclear technology".
"The Iranian nation's rights were taken from the streets to Lausanne and Vienna, Geneva and New York and established in the place where they were denied," said Rouhani.
He also added: "Our nuclear industry being recognised globally and commercially is the result of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) ".
He went on to say: "Exporting heavy water and radiopharmaceuticals, as well as importing yellow cake are proofs of Iran's presence in international market".
We can make Iran greater if we set aside disagreements and stand together, said the President adding: "We will be able to achieve the greatest victories in the world, the region and inside our country by internal solidarity".
On US attack on Syria, he said: "If there was rule of law in the world, the President of the United States would not believe he was entitled to attack an independent country without the United Nation's authorisation".
Has anybody ever given the US President the right to act as they wish in the world?, he posed the question adding: "Unfortunately, some countries in the region are cheering the US and terrorists; they should know that their time will come too".
Urging people to attend the coming elections, he said "The Iranian nation must show their power to the world by attending the elections".
The goal of elections is to prove religious democracy in the world, he added, saying: "We must be careful not to let immoralities in elections to make our Islamic land like the US elections".
"People attending in elections in large numbers, coupled with upholding the rule of law is what we and the whole Iranian nation want," the President continued.
He added: "If we have achieved anything, it has been because we exercised unity and moralities. We must volunteer for devotion and self-sacrifice in all fields".
The President of the Islamic Republic of Iran also went on to say: "Our martyrs and nation have chosen the path of freedom and morality".
