Speaking to reporters at the end of a cabinet session, the president said, "The issue of resignation is in no way discussed." Ahmadinejad further stressed, "Mr. Mottaki does his everyday work very energetically and, today he was present in the cabinet session from the start to the end." "Mr. Mottaki appointed his deputy last night and since then a psychological war has been triggered," said the president.
