TEHRAN (ISNA)-Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad stressed sanctions have not and would never affect Iran's progresses.

In an interview with the Mexican TV Channel Televisa, Ahmadinejad pointed out that the Iranian people would defend themselves against any threat.

Ahmadinejad continued Iran has never recognized Zionist regime as an independent state and the UN itself has announced it as an "occupier" and has issued different resolutions against the regime.

"Hegemonic powers are aware that they have created Zionist regime to dominate the Middle East," the President stressed.

He referred to the U.S. allegation on accusing Iran of plotting to assassinate Saudi Arabian ambassador to the U.S. and cooperating with Mexican drug cartel, stressing 3600 individual have been martyred in Iran so far for fighting drug and hundreds of millions dollars are spent to impede drug transference from Afghanistan to other parts of the world. The U.S. politicians do not believe in submitting any document to prove any claim.

He stressed Iranian nation enjoys friendly relation with Mexican and Saudi Arabian nations and never takes action against any nation.

He also referred to the recent smear campaign which claimed Iran's then ambassador to Mexico has taken action against the U.S. through internet, noting the case is another allegation put forth by the U.S. statesmen against Iran.
