Iran Dismisses EU Sanctions

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad today dismissed EU’s warning that it will impose sanctions on Iran beyond those mandated by the UN if Iran did not halt its uranium enrichment activities. Ahmadinejad mocked the West by repeatedly saying that they “cannot do anything.”

EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana is due in Tehran on 15 June to present a new package of incentives to Iran if it suspended its enrichment program. But Ahmadinejad’s remarks make any prospects of a breakthrough unlikely.
