America’s recent unilateral sanctions against Iran over its peaceful nuclear activities are “hollow,” President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said. “The recent US decision (against Iran) has made it clear that the Americans are not even able to harm us unilaterally,” the president said addressing a local gathering. He was commenting on Washington’s latest act against Iran when US officials announced on October 25 that they have unilaterally imposed a package of sanctions against Iran for its peaceful nuclear activities. The sanctions have mostly targeted Iranian banks and companies. “The Americans think that they can force the Iranian nation to retreat by imposing unilateral economic sanctions and publicizing through some of their internal agents that the sanctions were effective and people faced economic difficulties,” President Ahmadinejad added. However, he stressed, “we are in a position today that the political and propaganda schemes to stop the Iranian nation have failed and the enemies have realized they are unable to check the progress of the Iranian nation.”
