President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Wednesday that the West must accept Iran's right to pursue a nuclear program and voiced confidence that the outcome of Teheran's controversy with the international community over the disputed issue would be positive. "The acceptance of the rights of the Iranian nation, by the West, is the only solution for the nuclear issue," Ahmadinejad said in a live talk show on state television. When asked about whether Iran would consider suspending the controversial uranium enrichment, whether the UN Security Council would impose a third round of sanctions on the country, and whether a military conflict was a possibility, the hardline Iranian leader cryptically said that "the road for the three" options was "almost blocked." Ahmadinejad argued that Iran is pursuing its nuclear activities in a "legal framework" and that the Security Council illegally passed resolutions against Teheran.
