Iran will not change its nuclear course or make any concessions to political pressure, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Monday hours before a crucial meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
"We have chosen our path and will continue this legitimate path and not give in to any pressure," news agency ISNA quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.
"The political ballyhoo will not have the least of effect on our decision and if they (Western nations) come up with political pressure, then also we will revise our approach," said Ahmadinejad.
The Iranian president had warned last month that Iran would not only revise its cooperation with the IAEA but even its commitment to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), if the Iranian case was referred to the United Nations Security Council.
