Iran promises 'historic slap'
SA | May 24, 2006
Tehran - Iran's hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad boasted on Wednesday that the Islamic republic had mastered the entire nuclear fuel cycle and that it would give a "historic slap" to any attacker.
Ahmadinejad said: "Today, Iran has mastered the entire nuclear fuel cycle, from start to finish, thanks to young Iranian scientists.
"The enemies are looking to plot and want to create differences among Iranians to stop us getting our rights.
"But, if they do the slightest damage to the Iranian people, if they commit the slightest aggression, they will receive an historic slap."
The president was speaking during commemorations of the 1982 recapture from Iraqi forces of Khorramshahr, one of the bloodiest battles of the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war.
UN security council, Germany to meet
Ahmadinejad's comments came as the permanent members of the United Nations security council and Germany were to meet in London for fresh efforts to agree on a strategy to confront the Islamic regime's nuclear programme.
Iran said it wanted to use the fuel cycle only to make civilian reactor fuel, although the same technology could be extended to making atomic weapons.
The European Union's 'big three' - Britain, France and Germany - were hoping to coax Iran into suspending uranium enrichment work in exchange for a package of trade and technology incentives.
According to a draft proposal, they wanted Russia and China to join in sanctions, including an arms embargo, if Iran didn't agree.
Iran had also rebuffed the EU-3's new initiative, repeating that its right to enrich uranium was not on the table.
