US' anti-Iran sanctions ‘unjust’, ‘illegal’: Larijani

TEHRAN, Nov. 06 (MNA) – Iranian Parliament speaker Ali Larijani has called the recent re-imposed US sanctions on Iran "unjust" and against international law.

Speaking in Tehran on Tuesday in a ceremony to commemorate the martyrdom of 1,500 police forces, Larijani condemned some regional countries’ policies, saying “some countries today have money, oil and gas, but they are controlled by the United States and the Zionist regime.”

Larijani noted that while the enemies of Iran are putting utmost pressure on the country, they covertly feel respect for the Iranian nation.

He condemned the United States’ withdrawal from Iran nuclear deal and its call for a new deal, adding that the Iranian missiles protect the country against the enemies’ bullying policies.

He stressed that the US sanctions against the Iranian nation are unjust and run counter to international law.

Larijani then noted the US claim that it could cut Iran's oil sales to zero by November, saying that the enemies, while they struck a blow, ultimately failed to achieve their objectives.

The Iranian parliament speaker said the sanctions can be seen as an opportunity for Iranian economy, stressing that if Iran can focus on its domestic capabilities and developing its 'resistance economy', the enemies would not seek to impose sanctions on the Islamic Republic again.
