Ahmadinejad: US Accusations Aimed at Blocking Iran's Rise

TEHRAN (FNA)- Washington's allegations against Tehran are intended to prevent the country from progress, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Sunday, stressing that such claims are raised to deter Iran from becoming a world power.
"The hegemonic system has today reached a deadlock and they cannot bear to see that a flag has been raised in the world which displays the culture, thought and revolutionary spirit of the Iranian nation, and they hatch plots to attack it for the very same reason," Ahmadinejad said alluding to the United States' recent allegations against Tehran.
