Ahmadinejad says he speaks Azari
[Iran Press TV Latest] Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says he has the honor to fluently speak the Azari language with Azari-speaking Iranians in different parts of the country. "During my eight-year mission in Ardebil province, I learnt one of the best and most complete languages -- Azari -- and can easily speak it," Ahmadinejad said in an address to people of the northwestern city of Tabriz on Sunday.
Oh, yeah? Well, B.O. can speak Austrian!
His remarks come as presidential campaigns in Iran are in full gear ahead of the June 12 polls.
He also criticized those who sacrificed the Islamic Revolution as well as the Iranian nation for their own interests.
"We shoulder the responsibility of moving forward with the development of Iran and believe that this improvement should be made on a just basis," said the president.
"Certain extremists and selfish individuals insult the Iranian people while justice is supposed to be established and the national wealth distributed equally among the nation," he added.
Ahmadinejad, who seeks re-election, defended the foreign policy of his government.
"I will act as the symbol of power and bravery of the Iranian nation against bullying powers. I will never bow to the enemy not even one iota," he said.
