Ahmadinejad: New sanctions won't stop Iran's nuclear activities

Iran's nuclear activities will not be deterred by any new UN Security Council resolutions imposing sanctions on the Islamic Republic, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Wednesday. The five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany agreed Tuesday to impose new sanctions on Iran over its controversial nuclear program though the measures appeared to fall short of what the United States had wanted. "From our point of view, the issue is over. The issuance of a new resolution won't have any impact on the behavior of the Iranian nation," the official IRNA news agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.
