The Iranian president says all the problems existing in the world stem from global mismanagement, which has resulted in unequal distribution of wealth.
“As a result of the existing immoral management in the world, most of the wealth is in the possession of a select few and the majority of the people of the world are held back,” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday.
The president said that the wealth amassed in the US and European countries is “not the fruit of their hard work,” IRNA reported.
“All of this wealth is the result of imposing poverty upon other countries,” Ahmadinejad said, adding that “the American and European people are too held captive by the cruelty and injustice of their corrupt leaders.”
If the United States' military spending along with the military beget of a few other countries were distributed across the world, there would be no poverty, Ahmadinejad said.
The Iranian president also praised late founder of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ruhollah Khomeini, saying the ideas and thoughts of Imam Khomeini will never be forgotten.
"Imam Khomeini's thoughts are divine in nature,” Ahmadinejad said on Thursday, ahead of the 22nd anniversary of the passing of Imam Khomeini.
