Tehran, Iran, Feb. 01 – Iran’s hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced on Wednesday that it was the country’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, not himself, that was responsible for making decisions over Tehran’s controversial nuclear activities.

“The state’s major policies on the nuclear issue are decreed by the Supreme Leader. The government is obliged to carry them out and is the entity for making announcements on this matter”, Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying by the official news agency IRNA.

Ahmadinejad added that he himself was responsible for “announcing” the country’s positions on the nuclear front but that it was Khamenei who was ultimately responsible for the nuclear decisions.

The comments indicate that Ahmadinejad’s frequent heavy-toned remarks over the nuclear issue are not mere posturing; rather, they are official state policy.

Tehran has vowed to defy a resolution by the United Nations Security Council ordering it to freeze uranium enrichment and imposing mild sanctions for having failed to do so.
