President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Monday that Iran would not retreat from its right to nuclear technology, state television reported.
"The Iranian nation will stand up for its legal right and will not retreat even one iota to preserve its nuclear right," Ahmadinejad said in a televised speech to a rally in the central city of Shiraz.
"By misusing international organisations (the United Nations) ... you (the West) cannot pressure Iran to abandon its right."
