Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was awarded an honorary doctorate in political sciences from the Lebanese University in Beirut, according to a Press TV report.

During his speech at the university, Ahmadinejad reportedly accused the West of blocking other countries from accessing peaceful nuclear technology.

“They have deprived other nations of this technology and have monopolized it,” Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying.

The Iranian leader also slammed the US for its military policies in the Middle East, accusing Washington of killing innocent civilians in Afghanistan under the guise of the War on Terror.
