Iranshahr: According to IRNA report, after the official inauguration of six road projects in Sistan-Baluchestan Province, [Iranian President] Mahmud Ahmadinezhad said in his speech that "enemies have the right to be afraid of Iran with has rich cultural and historical background".
He added: "Iran's development in economic and scientific fields will create a huge barrier for imperialism and dictatorship".
The president said that imperialistic powers were aiming to abuse the undeveloped and weak countries in the region. "They [developed and powerful countries] sell weapons worth billions of dollars in exchange for oil they buy from countries in the region," he said.
Ahmadinezhad went on to add: "Weapons are for damage and destruction. Being undeveloped and weak, counties in the Persian Gulf region cannot stand against arrogance and Zionists, so they buy weapons in exchange for oil they sell to these countries."
He said: "If they had had power and had been developed, they would have never agreed to exchange their oil for weapons."
The president said: "By selling arms to these countries, enemies are trying to ensure further exploitation of the region."
Ahmadinezhad also said that "these days most nations in the world are looking for our help, even countries that are being controlled by governments which are against the Islamic Republic of Iran such as the USA and some European countries."
He added: "The peoples of the countries that are controlled by arrogant and violent states have no supporters and refuge and they pin their hopes on the Iranian nation today."
