The Leader of the Islamic Ummah and Opressed People has warned against international sanctions against Iran over its nuclear energy program, saying Iran will thwart sanctions.
“The Iranian authorities and nation will undoubtedly circumvent sanctions (against the country) and render them ineffective just as they did over the past three decades and will move ahead with progress and development,” said Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with Iranian industrialists and manufacturers on Tuesday.
The Leader stressed the importance of creating a “truly resistant economy” to counter sanctions and economic pressure by arrogant powers.
He reiterated that the enemies seek to frustrate the Iranian people by exerting economic pressure on the country with the intent of turning the nation against the government by blaming it for poor economic performance.
Imam Khamenei said their goal is to cut ties between the government and nation.
However, they have not known the Iranian nation and are mistaken in their calculations.
The Leader urged Iranian officials to collaborate closely to bring about growth and development in the country.
Under intense political pressure from the US, the United Nations Security Council imposed a fourth round of sanctions on Iran on June 9 over the country’s nuclear energy activities. The US and the European Union then brought additional unilateral sanctions on the Islamic Republic
In addition to the Security Council’s resolution, the United States and European Union imposed additional unilateral sanctions on the Islamic Republic in an effort to cripple Iran’s economy and bend the country’s resolve in continuing with its peaceful nuclear program.
