Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinezhad has said that NATO and Western countries cannot bring democracy and freedom to nations.
"Democracy and freedom will never come out of the barrel of the gun of the NATO army and NATO's bombardment," he said while speaking at a rally in Tehran's Azadi Square on the occasion of the 33rd anniversary of Iran's Islamic Revolution on 11 February.
"Interference of arrogant governments will not take nations to freedom. If they spend a dollar, they expect to plunder hundreds of dollars," Ahmadinezhad said.
The president's speech was broadcast live by Iranian state news network IRINN, state-run Channel One and English-language Press TV.
