Khamenei: Iran Could Cut Europe’s Access to Gas if Sanctions not Lifted

Al-Akhbar English/Reuters, February 18

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei vowed on Wednesday that his country would resist global sanctions imposed over its nuclear program, saying that Iran might respond to international pressure by cutting back gas exports.

“The enemy is using the lever of sanctions to the hilt and their goal is to stop our people’s progress,” Khamenei said in a public speech in Tehran, according to IRNA news agency.

“I believe that if we allow them to dictate to us on the nuclear issue, they will still keep the sanctions in place because what they are against is the very foundation of our revolution.”
