Iran's supreme leader says the country will continue to acquire nuclear technology

Updated:
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) _ Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Wednesday that his country would continue to acquire nuclear technology and challenge what he called ``Western fabrications.''

Speaking to a crowd of thousands in Semnan, a city 155 miles east of Tehran, Khamenei said most countries believe that ``nuclear energy should be taken away from the hands of a few powers,'' state media reported.

``The Americans open their mouth and close their eyes and say whatever they want, such as 'the world opposes ) enrichment,' Khamenei said, referring to Iran's enrichment of uranium, which the U.N. Security Council has called on Iran to cease.

``No,'' Khamenei replied, addressing the United States, ``it is you who do not know and does not see the world.''
