TEHERAN, Iran - Iran's Revolutionary Guard said Monday that it was "not worried" by the latest wave of UN sanctions imposed over Tehran's controversial nuclear program.

The force's senior commander, Gen. Hossein Salami, said Iran had shaped its defense capabilities "on the basis of worst-case scenarios" and that the new sanctions won't stop Iran's nuclear program.

His remarks — reported on Monday by the official IRNA news agency — were the Guard's first reaction to the latest UN measure.
