Mousavi: The nuclear issue is similar to the oil nationalization issue In his first press conference in the new Iranian year, presidential hopeful Mir Hosein Mousavi, drew an analogy between the issue of Iran’s quest for nuclear energy technology and its struggle for the nationalization of its oil industry over fifty years ago. According to the reports obtained by WashingtonTV from Tehran, Mousavi dated the inception of Iran’s nuclear activities back to his own government and said: “We must note that we may not back down in the nuclear issue, because it is as momentous as a possible retreat in claiming our rights in the oil nationalization campaign in the 1950s.” He added: “We are committed to peaceful use of nuclear energy.” Showered by questions from foreign correspondence about Iran-US bonds in the Obama administration, Mousavi re-affirmed that Iran awaits concrete changes in US policies.
