Iranian minister says sanctions are ineffective

Published: 07.27.07, 02:25 / Israel News

More US or international sanctions will not persuade Iran to back down on its nuclear program and could lead to "confrontation" with the West, Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said in an interview published on Thursday.


"In today's world, the instrument of sanctions is no longer effective," he said according to a report on the NPR Web site which was to be broadcast by the network later on Thursday. Mottaki said the new UN resolution would not force Iran to halt its uranium enrichment program. "It will be the start of a confrontation," he said. (Reuters)
