Tehran, Iran, Feb. 15 – The Islamic Republic’s hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made a surprise visit on Wednesday to Iran’s uranium enrichment facility in Natanz.

Speaking in Natanz, Ahmadinejad said that the West was opposed to Iran making scientific progress on its own.

“Iran’s successful acquirement of peaceful nuclear technology know-how will lead the country to make progress in all areas”, he said.

“Sometimes the path of a nation towards development and progress is one that is in tangles making people unhopeful about reaching the goals but when one of its twists is undone then the whole confusion will be resolved and it will lead to new developments in all areas”.

He vowed that Tehran would not retreat in the face of mounting international pressure over its nuclear activities.

Ahmadinejad was shown around the site by the head of Iran’s atomic energy agency, Gholam-Reza Aghazadeh.

Iran has resumed uranium enrichment despite repeated requests by the International Atomic Energy Agency to refrain from doing so for fears that it may be producing a nuclear bomb.

The European Union condemned on Tuesday Iran’s decision to resume previously-suspended nuclear enrichment activities at Natanz.
