Tehran, Iran, Apr. 26 –Iran’s hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Wednesday that the Islamic Republic would not back down “an iota” in its nuclear standoff with the West.

“Regarding the Iranian nation’s nuclear rights we are not willing to back down an iota”, Ahmadinejad told reporters at a joint press conference with Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir.

“The [International Atomic Energy”> Agency was obliged under the Non-Proliferation Treaty to respect our nuclear rights and assist our country in obtaining peaceful technology”, he said, adding that the UN nuclear agency had “failed” to live up to its obligations.

He warned the West that Tehran would ignore “incorrect decisions” being imposed on it by the IAEA and the United Nations Security Council.

“An unjust decision by the international community on Iran’s nuclear program has no legitimacy for Iran even if it comes through the Security Council or other international organisations”, the hard-line President said.

The West was carrying out a psychological war against Iran to gain concessions, he added.

In March, the Security Council adopted a “Presidential Statement” unanimously giving Iran until April 28 to suspend all of its uranium enrichment activities and resume its cooperation with the UN nuclear watchdog.
