Tehran, April 16 - The Iranian president reiterated Monday that his country will never give up its legitimate right to develop nuclear technologies.

'The Iranian people will continue to defend their legitimate demands and rights -, and will not yield an inch,' Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in a speech during a trip to southern Iran, which was aired on national television.

He called on global powers to stop pressuring and threatening Iran saying, 'These policies will not only fail to bring positive results, but will harm those who conduct them instead.'

Ahmadinejad said Iran will continue work on its civilian nuclear program to 'realize its undeniable right' and develop its nuclear power industry.

Last week the Iranian president claimed that the country has attained an industrial level in its uranium enrichment activities.

On Sunday, an Iranian nuclear official invited global tenders for construction of two nuclear power plants in the south of the country.
