Iran to Continue Sanctions against Certain Western Officials

"We will certainly continue such measures in future as a kind of strategic policy," Head of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi told FNA.

He said the westerners should know that they will have to face a similar response from the representatives of the Iranian nation for any move that they take against the Iranian people and "the number of our responses will be as many as their steps".

Boroujerdi named Britain as one of the first European countries that the anti-human rights behavior of its officials are being studied by the Iranian lawmakers for future sanctions and prosecution.

The Iranian Parliament on Sunday released the list of 26 US officials sanctioned and prosecuted by Tehran for various crimes ranging from violation of human rights to sponsoring terrorist and drug-trafficking activities.

Speaking to reporters after a meeting of the Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission on Sunday, Kazzem Jalali, the commission rapporteur, said that the motion to impose sanctions on and prosecute certain American officials was unanimously adopted.

On Monday, the Iranian parliament announced plans to annul the country's agreements with all the state and private firms and companies which are affiliated or somehow related to the 26 US officials sanctioned by Iran.

"The parliament intends to require Iranian economic firms to annul their deals with the companies with which the 26 American officials have direct or indirect economic ties," member of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Mohammad Karim Abedi told FNA on Monday.
