Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council, Mohsen Rezaei, believes Iranians should endure the sanctions applied by the United States on Iran’s economy.
“Iran is not acting like adventurers in nuclear power field. Iran is trying hard to reserve the right of uranium enrichment but the 5+1 group is not cooperating with Iran in negotiations. If Iranians demonstrate the sanctions are as ineffective on them then we can reach to our intentions and goals in negotiations with world’s powers. And if they don’t endure these sanctions we cannot take any advantages in our negotiations.” Mohsen Rezaei said.
“Currently Iran’s economy can be assumed as a big university for younger people. However we need a big jump in economy in order to solve the problems such as unemployment and etc.” Mohsen Rezaei commented on Iran’s economy.
The European Union has imposed restrictions on cooperation with Iran in foreign trade, financial services, energy sectors and technologies, and banned the provision of insurance and reinsurance by insurers in member states to Iran and Iranian-owned companies. On 23 January 2012, the EU agreed to an oil embargo on Iran, effective from July, and to freeze the assets of Iran’s central bank.
