Speaker US Sanctions Do Not Affect Iranians

TEHRAN,--Majlis Speaker GholamaAli Haddad-Adel said on Sunday economic sanctions renewed by the United States against Iran have no impact on the Iranian people.
Haddad-Adel made the remark in an open Majlis session in reaction to the extension of anti-Iran sanctions by the US Congress, IRNA reported.
“Extension of sanctions indicates that Americans are still traversing along the previous path,“ he said.
“They do not have any serious decision to revise their policies and have not learnt anything from the current world situation.“
Haddad-Adel noted that hatred toward US policies has become so evident in the world today that even US officials and media admit that it has spread even inside that country.
The speaker added that Washington has not realized the important point that Iranians launched the Islamic Revolution 28 years ago to put an end to US intervention and bullying, and to get rid of US dependence.
“This is the main message of the Islamic Revolution for the US. As long as US officials do not get this message, no change would take place in bilateral relations.“
Referring to the country’s scientific progress, he said, “The US will sustain more damage than the Iranian nation as a result of sanctions.“
Pointing to last week’s visit of the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, Gholamreza Aqazadeh, to Moscow, he said talks were held on the completion of Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant. He expressed regret over repeated delays in completing the plant and said the Iranian nation is concerned about the promises not kept by Russian officials.
