Spokesman: Iran not afraid of new sanctions
Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad-Ali Hosseini on Sunday stressed that imposing new sanctions will have no effect on Iran. Talking to reporters, he said, "If the Group 5+1 member states are interested in transparent-seeking attitudes, the process followed up by the Islamic Republic of Iran has indicated Iran's peaceful objectives."
"If they are seeking to deprive Iran of its legitimate rights by imposing sanctions, it will have no effect on Iran," Hosseini reiterated, according to IRNA. On EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana's report to the Group 5+1 meeting, he said the content of the message is yet to be announced.
On a meeting held between Solana and Secretary of Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili in London on Friday, he said, "Jalili briefed Solana on Iran's ideas regarding the nuclear issue." It should be mentioned that after these talks, Solana said he was "disappointed."
