Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad warned the West on Wednesday that any possible sanctions would not stop his government from enriching uranium. "You are mistaken if you assume that the Iranian nation will stop for even a moment from the path toward using nuclear energy, due to your nags," he said, addressing the West before a crowd of supporters in Hashtgerd, 90 kilometers west of the capital Teheran. "This nation is powerful and won't give in to one iota of coercion," he said. "It's been 27 years that they (the West) haven't allowed us to use technologies that they possess," Ahmadinejad said, referring to the amount of time US sanctions have been in place against Iran, since the 1979 hostage-taking at the US Embassy in Teheran. "They have to know that, despite their wish, and by the grace of God and efforts of our youths, the Iranian nation will remove all obstacles and will capture the peaks of progress," he said.
