Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Monday stressed that sanctions threated by European and Western states on Iran would have no impact on the country's decision to access peaceful nuclear technology.
Ahmadinejad's remarks came as he spoke to reporters who asked him to comment on possible sanctions that may be imposed by the West on Iran. "If the enemies of the Iranian nation impose (additional) sanctions on Iran, we will also impose sanctions on them. They have carried out whatever they desired during the past 27 years (since the Islamic Revolution in 1979). Such threats are not new," he said, according to IRNA.
Addressing the youth of Islamic Iran, he assured them that "wherever faith, determination and resistance exists, victory will not be far behind." "This is a very simple formula as far as the country's youth is concerned," he said.
