Iran: EU sanctions will have no impact

07-06-2012 00:14 BJT

The head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Fereidoon Abbasi, says that the new round of oil sanctions will have no impact on the country’s nuclear advancements.

He dismissed the possibility that the new sanctions would force Iran into submission to the West’s demands - saying that the nuclear energy industry has developed and achieved self-sufficiency despite 30 years of sanctions.

The chief says Iranian experts will counter the new sanctions and continue on their path toward success. In January, EU foreign ministers approved new sanctions against Tehran. The move blocks member states from buying Iranian crude. The sanctions went into effect on July the first.
