TEHRAN - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday denounced European countries that are tightening sanctions on Iran as puppets of a US master and said he was surprised at their moves to isolate Tehran's central bank.

"We have had no relations with America for the past 32 years so we had no relationship with them yesterday and won't have tomorrow," Ahmadinejad said in a speech broadcast live on state television.

"But we are surprised by these European puppets, who immediately repeat whatever their master says like impotent servants."

The United States, Britain and Canada announced new sanctions on Iran's energy and financial sectors on Monday and the European Union followed suit the next day in a concerted effort to pressure Tehran to halt its nuclear program.
