Cleric Reiterates Inefficiency of New Round of Sanctions against Iran

ayatollah ahmad jannati

Tehran’s Provisional Friday Prayers Leader Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati lashed out at the UN Security Council for imposing a new round of sanctions against Iran, and stressed that such pressures will cause flourishing of Iranian’s talent.

Addressing a large and fervent congregation of people on Tehran University campus, Ayatollah Jannati said, "Though putting us in trouble all these years, the sanctions have caused flourishing of talents and progress of the nation."

He added that many of Iran’s technological and scientific achievements have been due to sanctions.

Ayatollah Jannati further noted that Iranian people are accustomed to sanctions and are not scared of it.

He underlined Iran’s ability to turn the resolution threats into an opportunity, and noted:

"God willing and under wise leadership of the Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei and through people’s backing, we will turn the threats into opportunity, thus bringing the US disgrace."

Ayatollah Jannati also pointed to the May 17 Iran-Turkey-Brazil Fuel Swap Declaration and said the declaration disclosed many accusations, lies and libels, showing that the Islamic Republic of Iran is not after production of nuclear weapons.

"Tehran Declaration shows Iran’s preparedness to have peaceful (nuclear) activities. The declaration convinced major portion of the world people. By issuing a new resolution, they also disgraced themselves," Ayatollah Jannati concluded.
