The following are the highlights of President Ahmadinejad's TV address to the Iranian people on Tuesday night:
"Iran's nuclear issue has been resolved ... We will hold no talks [with major powers] over this issue. There is no need for talks."
"Talking about isolating Iran [over its nuclear work] is a psychological war launched by the West ... Iran is a unique country ... and no country can isolate it."
“No one can isolate Iran because global interactions and Iran's unique characteristics in the Middle East will not allow such a move.”
