Iran has new proposals for global peace: AhmadinejadApril 15th, 2009 - 6:37 pm ICT by IANS
Tehran, April 15 (IANS) Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Wednesday said Tehran would offer a new set of proposals to “secure global peace and justice”, IRNA reported.
“The proposals will focus on ways to secure global peace and justice, respect to rights of all nations, and participation of all governments and nations in settlement of international crises,” Ahmadinejad said while addressing a gathering in the southern city of Kerman.
Iran “believes in dialogue and logic” and is interested in dialogue since it considers dialogue and logic as “best possible ways to administer the entire world”, the Iranian president said.
However, he did not elaborate what would be content of his proposals and whether those have anything to do with the country’s nuclear standoff.
His comments came a day after the Obama administration said it wanted to get Iran back to the negotiation table. There were also reports that US plans not to oppose Iran in continuing uranium enrichment at its present level for some time.
Ahmadinejad said the people of Iran had proved their commitment to logic, dialogue and justice in the past three decades and “no power can impose its will on the Iranian nation”.
The West, especially the US, claims that Iran intends to develop nuclear weapons under the cover of its nuclear programme, a charge Iran has denied.
Iran insists that its nuclear plan is for peaceful purposes, and it will continue its uranium enrichment activity despite pressure and sanctions from Western countries.
