ImageTehran, Iran, Apr. 19 – Iran’s Minister of Industries and Mines said on Saturday that international sanctions had no effect on the progress of the Islamic Republic’s industries, state media reported.

Referring to United Nations Security Council sanctions against Tehran over its controversial nuclear program, Ali-Akbar Mehrabian said, “The enemy resorted to various ways to stop the progress of Iran's industries; however, the country has continued its way forward stronger than ever”. His remarks were carried by the official state news agency IRNA.

Mehrabian added that the United States would stand to lose the most from the Security Council sanctions imposed on Iran.

The UN 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.

The latest sanctions resolution was initially agreed on 22 January by the P5+1 and then slightly adjusted to suit the other 10 non-Permanent Members of the Security Council. Resolution 1803 builds on resolutions 1696, 1737 and 1747. Resolutions 1737 and 1747 imposed sanctions on Tehran.
