Imposing Sanctions against Iran

Monday, December 3, 2007

Iran has said that imposing sanctions and resolutions against Tehran will not be helpful in solving disputes over its nuclear case.

"There is no excuse for the other party to impose new sanctions against Iran," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Mohammad-Ali Hosseini said.

He stated that Iran would continue its peaceful nuclear activities under supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

The spokesman stressed that Iran would not accept limitations other than those explicit in the Non-Proliferation Treaty.

"Opposition to Iran's peaceful nuclear activities has no legal basis," he said.

Hosseini said that the meeting of the 5+1 Group (Russia, China, France, Britain and the US plus Germany) was held in the absence of Russia's representative.

It concluded without any specific result, he said, adding discussions would continue.

"If these countries seek transparency (over Iran's nuclear program), steps taken by Tehran so far completely indicate Iran's peaceful goals. If they intend to deprive Iran of its inalienable rights by resorting to sanctions, such actions will bear no fruit," Hosseini stated.
