Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad vowed Friday that Iran would defend its nuclear program and declared that his country would be a role model for others trying to develop advanced technology. State television reported the hard-liner president's speech to a crowd gathered in a northern Iranian town, made a day after the UN nuclear watchdog reported that Iran had not heeded the world body's demand to roll back its nuclear program. "The Iranian nation has resisted all bullies and corrupt powers and it will fully defend its all rights," the broadcast quoted Ahmadinejad as telling people in Fuman. It did not say whether the president elaborated on the means of defense Iran would use. Ahmadinejad declared that if his country reaches the "peaks of technology and science, then it will be a role model" for other countries.
