MP: Iranians to Overcome West's Sanction through Obeying Supreme Leader
TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior Iranian lawmaker stressed that the Iranian people will win the economic war against enemies by obeying the guidelines of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei.
The Iranian nation would overcome sanctions with patience, resistance, social solidarity and following the guidance of Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, Vice-Chairman of the Iranian Parliament Mohammad Hassan Aboutorabi-Fard said on Friday.
After the UN Security Council ratified a sanctions resolution against Iran on June 9, 2010, the United States and the European Union imposed further unilateral sanctions against the Islamic Republic over its nuclear program, mostly targeting the country's energy and banking sectors.
Tehran has always dismissed West's pressures and stressed that sanctions and embargos merely consolidate Iranians' national resolve to continue the path of progress.
The EU measure was ratified at a ministerial meeting in January, but the 27-member bloc deferred its implementation until July 1.
Meantime, Analysts believe that the EU started implementation of the sanctions against Iran at a time when it is experiencing its worst economic conditions.
