Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Thursday that his country's economy would not be damage by newly imposed Western sanctions, AFP reported. “At one point our trade with the Europe was around 90 percent but now it only approximately 10%, and even this 10% we don't need... History has shown that the Iranian nation can not be hurt [by Western sanctions],” Ahmadinejad said.

Turning to the US, Ahmadinejad said that “for the past 30 years the Americans have not been buying oil from us." He added that Tehran's central bank has no relations with the US, according to the AFP report.
