A strong majority of Iranians want their country to continue to develop its nuclear program, despite the burdensome effect of Western sanctions, according to a Gallup poll published Thursday.

The West has pursued a strategy of international sanctions against Tehran in a bid to halt its illicit nuclear program. Though the approach has led to a fall in the standing of Iran's currency, the rial, and a drop in the Iranian GDP, Iran has repeatedly indicated that it has no intention of slowing nuclear research.
