Iran's development and progress is like a moving "train with no brakes and reverse gear," Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Sunday, according to IRNA - the Islamic Republic News Agency. Speaking at the 14th gathering of police commanders and senior officials, Ahmadinejad added that Iran was committed to building a "moderate and exemplary society based on justice, love and brotherhood in this sacred territory." He claimed that the Iranian nation was the front-runner in all scientific, research, cultural, moral, political and economic fields, and praised the Islamic republic's influence on international relations, the news agency reported. Ahmadinejad said that despite efforts to isolate Iran, the Iranian nation was "currently one of the dearest world nations." The Iranian president claimed that enemies' efforts to damage national sovereignty, territorial integrity, independence, security and freedom of the Iranian people were destined to fail, IRNA said. He also emphasized the need for Iranian vigilance to counter the "enemies' conspiracies."
