Iranian president warns US not to push for new sanctions

(Irish News) President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said yesterday that it was “too late” to stop Iran’s nuclear programme and warned the US and its allies not to push for new UN sanctions. 

“We advise them not to play with the lion’s tail,” Mr Ahmadinejad said, drawing applause from reporters, Iranian officials and foreign dignitaries at a Tehran news conference. 

“It is too late to stop the progress of Iran,” Mr Ahmadinejad said. 

1.”Iran has passed the point where they wanted Iran to stop.” 

The UN Security Council is preparing to debate a third set of sanctions against the Islamic republic in response to Tehran’s continuing refusal to suspend uranium enrichment, which can produce fuel for civilian energy or fissile material for a bomb. 

Mr Ahmadinejad said that a third round of sanctions would only “make things harder for you and distances you from resolving the issue … We advise them to give up stubbornness and childish games”. 

Asked about Mr Ahmadinejad’s comment that it was too late to halt Iran’s nuclear push, US state department spokesman Sean McCormack said: “It isn’t.” 

“He could make the decision today to take up the reasonable offer to negotiate with the rest of the world so that Iran can make peaceful nuclear energy and not have a cloud hanging over the country. 

“The international system is not going to be intimidated by these kinds of threats and this bluff and bluster by the Iranian government.” 

But shortly after Mr Ahmadinejad’s press conference, Iran issued its harshest refutation yet of US demands to release dual citizens held in Iran on espionage charges. 

Iran’s foreign ministry said American abuses – from prisoner mistreatment at Guantanamo to a UCLA police officer’s shocking an Iranian-American student with a Taser – showed Washington had no right to criticise Iran’s human rights record.  

“Instead of offering inefficient suggestions, America should assess its own tactics – secret prisons, mistreatment and even inhuman treatment of prisoners in Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib,” foreign ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini said in a statement.
