MP: Obama Wrong in Extending National Emergency on Iran

“Imposing sanctions is among political activities of Democrats. US has imposed most sanctions against Iran over the years during the Democrats reign,” member of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Iranian Parliament (Majlis) Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh told ICANA on Sunday.

He added that the policy of sanctions against Iran will not work and said, “The US government has reached an understanding that the policy of sanctions is inefficient.”

“However, it is making efforts to impose broad sanctions against Iran through the UN Security Council.”

Falahatpisheh pointed out that US statesmen are upset with the ongoing developments in the Middle East and North Africa and noted that Washington believes that Iran is chiefly responsible for events in the Muslim world.

He emphasized that the US resorts to sanctions to isolate the Islamic Republic.

The remarks came after US President Barack Obama extended by one year a national emergency regarding Iran on Tuesday.

"Because the actions and policies of the government of Iran continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States, the national emergency declared on March 15, 1995, must continue in effect beyond March 15, 2011," said Obama in a statement.

"Therefore... I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency with respect to Iran," the statement read.

According to the national emergency, US firms are banned from participating in Iran's development of its oil industry, carrying out trade exchanges, importing from and exporting goods to Iran and making venture in the country.
