TEHRAN, June 30— The Supreme Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said Saturday that the Iranian nation will not give up its nuclear rights, stressing that the Western powers’ hue and cry will not have an impact on the nation’s strong determination.
Ayatollah Khamenei said the Iranian nation has shown that the government officials will enjoy public support wherever they choose the right path.
The leader said the US government has faced consecutive setbacks in the Middle East and, therefore, tries to divert the public attention from its humiliating failures.
Ayatollah Khamenei said senior US officials have made serious miscalculations in their Middle East policies and have now resorted to baseless anti-Iran accusations to conceal their mistakes.
In a meeting with members of the cabinet and the executive directors from throughout the country, the leader said that the ninth government has acted bravely in line with the objectives and values of the Islamic Revolution.
Meanwhile, a team from the UN nuclear watchdog will visit Iran on July 11-13 to discuss how to resolve questions about Tehran’s peaceful nuclear activities.
“A team consisting of the agency’s deputy director and some officials will come to Tehran to study a working plan that will answer all the remaining issues in regard to Iran’s nuclear program,” Iran’s IAEA envoy, Ali Asghar Soltanieh, told ISNA news agency.
Olli Heinonen, the UN agency’s global head of inspectors, would lead the delegation.
