FILE -- In this Wednesday, Feb. 29, 2012, file photo released by an official website of the Iranian supreme leader's office, Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, delivers a speech in a public gathering in Tehran, Iran. Just days before Iran's parliamentary elections, the country's supreme leader gave what amounted to a pep rally on the Islamic Republic's nuclear views. Atomic technology is a pillar of "national dignity,'' said Ayatollah Khamenei, and Iran must stand firm against the "bullying'' pressures from the West.
