Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Thursday his country would not be frightened by threats to impose sanctions on Iran over its disputed nuclear program, hours after Britain's UN ambassador said the Security Council would begin discussing sanctions next week. "Those who threaten Iran by sanctions and embargo should know that this nation lived under the hardest situation in the past 27 years and achieved nuclear technology. This nation will not be frightened by the threats," state-run television quoted Ahmadinejad as saying. Britain's UN ambassador earlier Thursday announced that the UN Security Council would start discussing a resolution next week that would place sanctions on Iran for refusing to suspend uranium enrichment, a key component in developing nuclear weapons.
