Tehran, Iran, Aug. 31 – Iran’s hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad warned the West on Wednesday that sanctions could not deter the Islamic Republic from its nuclear ambitions.

“European states must not follow the incorrect and antagonistic policies of the United States, since the U.S. is only after its own interests”, Ahmadinejad said during a meeting with former Spanish Prime Minister Felipe Gonzalez. His remarks were carried by the state-run news agency ISNA.

“Much of the country’s achievements such as mastering the nuclear fuel cycle and producing heavy-water came about during times of sanctions. Therefore, it is better for the European states to make an independent decision and resolve issues through negotiations”, he said.

He said that the EU stood to lose from the existence of Israel which he labelled as the “root of the Middle East crisis”. “Forcing this regime (Israel) on the people of the region has not only inflicted damages on these people but is also to the loss of European countries since the people of the region blame the crimes of the Zionist regime on the support it receives from the U.S. and certain European states”, Ahmadinejad said.
