Rohani prepared to debate Ahmadinejad

TEHRAN, May 26 (MNA) -- Expediency Council Strategic Research Center Director Hassan Rohani has said he is ready to debate President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad over the nuclear issue.

“If the president is ready to defend his remarks about the system’s nuclear policy, I am ready to hold a debate with him in order to enlighten the public,” he told the Mehr News Agency on Tuesday.

 

The president has criticized the nuclear policy of the previous administration, saying they were “lax” in handling the issue.

 

Rohani added, “It is unfortunate that an important national issue like nuclear technology, which is a historical achievement for the Iranian nation not limited to any (particular) administration, is being turned into a tool in the election and in political games.”

 

“Nuclear technology and any other scientific achievements are the result of long-term and strategic plans, and all administrations have played a role,” he emphasized.
