Iranian Chairman of Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi, while pointing to the recent words by Iran’s Leader Ayatollah Khamenei on imposing sanctions on west, said the Leader’s comments indicates the capacity and capability that exists in Iran in the sense that the country  was not powerless in giving a response to west’s sanctions.

Asked whether Islamic Republic of Iran might respond to international pressure by cutting back gas exports, Boroujerdi said Iran has no gas export deal to Europe, however, a big collection of the world's oil and gas is in Iran so that the country can [as the Leader said] hold back on the gas that Europe and the world is so dependent on.
