(JNS) Iran’s foreign minister said the recent decision to feed gas into cascades of new centrifuges was made in response to America’s obsession with imposing new sanctions on the country.
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian stated that the “irrational” and “insane” sanctions imposed by the United States on his country would have no negative impact on Iran’s progress.
“I would like to point out that in response to this American action, Iran started feeding gas into hundreds of new generation centrifuges last night,” he said, according to Iran’s Press TV.
“They need to put aside their excessive demands,” he said. “We are people of logic and dialogue, and we are serious about reaching a strong agreement, but if the Americans want to continue on this path, our hands will not be tied.”
