New Delhi, Aug 9 (ANI): President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has revealed that Iran has survived for 31 years without any economic ties to the West because of its successful anti- sanction plans.
Hitting back against recent sanctions imposed on Tehran by Washington last week, Ahmadinejad described it is a good opportunity for his country.
"Iran has come under increasing pressure from a fourth round of UN sanctions for its refusal to suspend uranium enrichment and resume negotiations on its nuclear program and even tougher measures imposed by the United States, the European Union, and Canada targeting the country's foreign trade, banking, and energy sectors," Xinhua quoted him' as saying.
"We will use the opportunity of sanctions to expand our domestic products, and globalize Iranian products. And, now that America has opened its way and removed the obstacles to hit us, we will hit them back from the same path, in such a way that they will be discarded," he added.
He further said his government has announced other decisions to counter the sanctions. (ANI)
