UN Resolutions “Not Worth Penny” – Ahmadinejad

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad addressing a large crowd in western Iranian city of Yasuj said today any new UN sanction resolution against Iran is “not worth a penny.” He added that Tehran would give no ground to pressure.

“You should know that your resolutions are not worth a penny,” Ahmadinejad said. “If you think that by making fuss and propaganda you can force us to withdraw, you are wrong. The Iranian nation will not withdraw even one inch from its stance.”

Ahmadinejad’s remarks, directed at the six major powers who were meeting to hash out their differences over a UN Security Council resolution, were the latest indication that the Iranian government was now expecting a new round of sanctions over the country’s uranium enrichment program. The Iranian president had launched a political offensive in the past two weeks to prevent the new UN resolution. He was the only head of state attending UN’s NPT conference in New York, and had visited a number of heads of states that currently hold the non-permanent seats at UNSC.
