(NSI News Source Info) TEHRAN, Iran - August 10, 2010: A senior foreign policy advisor to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution says Iran will not give in to US threats and will live up to its principles.
"The Islamic Republic will continue its efforts for consolidation of its independence and improvement of regional cooperation despite the fact that the US, whose threats are part of its psychological warfare [against the country], does not accept it" said Ali Akbar Velayati in a press conference in the Iranian embassy in the Syrian capital, Damascus, on Monday.
The top Iranian official further touched on Iran's nuclear program, saying the sanctions will not affect the country's progressive nuclear program under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency.
On June 9, the UN Security Council (UNSC) imposed the fourth series of sanctions on Iran as punitive measures against the country's nuclear program.
Following the UNSC sanctions, the United States, the European Union, Canada and Australia passed more unilateral sanctions against Iran's banking and energy sectors.
"Iran, however, has not declined negotiations over its nuclear program despite its considerations in the type of negotiations and the negotiating sides," Velayati added.
Commenting on the issue of Iraq, the Iranian official noted that the formation of the Iraqi government is a domestic issue, which should be decided by the Iraqi nation. "We respect the Iraqi people's decision and as Iran's neighbor we wish prosperity for the Iraqis," he went on to say.
During his three-day visit to Syria, the Iranian politician met with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus on Sunday.
Earlier this week, Velayati was in the Lebanese capital of Beirut to meet with President Michel Sleiman and Hezbollah's Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah.
