Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has stressed the importance of replacing the current cruel and inhumane global system with a divine world order.
In a Sunday speech at a special event organized by the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting to honor his administration’s achievements over the past eight years, Ahmadinejad said a strong Iran can be influential in international relations.
“By relying on a strong Iran, the flag of divine values can be raised in the world and a divine and human order can replace the current cruel one,” the president stated, adding, “We seek a great development and an ideal government … [because] the [Islamic] establishment, the government and the Islamic Revolution are meaningless without divine and human ideals.”
The president emphasized that great developments require strong divine and human bases and warned that if opportunities are not used properly they become threats.
He noted that Iran must be strong and developed in all fields “because a weak country can never spread divine values in the world.”
Ahmadinejad pointed out that arrogant powers and enemies of the Iranian nation have made every effort to hinder the country’s progress.
“Now that the country’s scientists have obtained this [nuclear] know-how, they [arrogant powers] can never prevent its continuation in our country,” he added.
The Iranian president said the capitalist system has spread discrimination and injustice in the world while giving opportunities, wealth and economic activities to a certain group of people.
Ahmadinejad is scheduled to hand over the presidency to Hassan Rohani in early August.
