President: West's anti Iran sanctions target Iranian people

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Kerman, Jan 26, IRNA -- President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday that the Western governments have targeted Iranian people by imposing sanctrions on Iran.

He made the remarks at inaugural ceremony of 14 development and industrial projects in the southeastern city of Sarcheshmeh, Kerman province.

President Ahmadinejad said that it is a big lie that they are not targeting the people, but, God willing the people will pass the barriers laid by west sanctions against them.

Addressing the enemies, he said, 'You are the real enemy of people and are putting pressure on them, but Iranian people are decisive to be victorious in this battle and to recover itself in the history.'

“I admonish you to pave the right track and do not make any excuses while the time is ripe for negotiations,” the President said.

Ahmadinejad reiterated that the Western governments are avoiding negotiations, because they are issuing anti-Iran resolutions on the eve of resuming the negotiations.

“Why should one make excuses and avoid negotiation while he is rationale and have something to say, but only arrogant and oppressors make these excuses,” he said.

Ahmadinejad said Iranians are not expecting any kind actions from their enemies while they are putting too much pressure on them and tolerate them and will not bow to their enemies.

“I once again advise you to be friendly to Iranians because it is no longer a time of making noises and bullying others in the world.”
