Iranian Parliament speaker Ali Larijani said Sunday that no action by the US or western nations could thwart Tehran's nuclear program, especially as the US government suffers from a lack of legitimacy following the Occupy Wall Street movement.

According to Larijani, who was speaking in Tehran to the opening session of the Iranian parliament (Majlis), said that US plots to tamper with Iran's nuclear development would "never solve their problems of falling behind events in the region," according to the official Islamic Republic News Agency.

Larijani said that such actions would only deepen US foreign policy failures, especially as the US government suffers from a "lack of legitimacy" amid ongoing Occupy Wall Street protests in the US.

Larjani noted that while "regional revolutions" continue in the Middle East, the US will be powerless to "save dictators ruling in the region," according to the IRNA report.
