ImageTehran, Iran, May 09 – Iran’s ambassador to Moscow has told Russian media that no incentive could ever be sufficient to make Iran relinquish its "nuclear rights", Iranian state media reported on Thursday.
 
Gholam-Reza Ansari on Wednesday told Radio Echo Moscow, "We are not seeking any concessions in that connection”, the state-owned English-language daily Tehran Times wrote.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei vowed last week that the Islamic Republic would resist United Nations Security Council sanctions over its controversial nuclear activities.

The Security Council voted in March to impose a third set of sanctions on Iran over its refusal to halt its suspected nuclear weapons activity. A European-sponsored resolution was adopted at the 15-member Council by 14 votes in favour, none opposed, and one abstention from Indonesia.

Resolution 1803 increased the mild trade bans in effect on Iran to include certain goods with both civilian and military uses. Under the new sanctions, certain Iranian companies and banks will have their accounts frozen, and goods entering and leaving Iran must be subjected to inspections.

The Security Council previously imposed two sets of milder sanctions on Tehran in December 2006 and March 2007 over its refusal to halt its uranium enrichment activities which the West suspects is part of a nuclear weapons program.
