“[The US] should know that in line with international law, such as Paragraph 4, Article 14 of Geneva 1958 Convention, if oil sanctions are imposed on Iran, we will not allow even a single barrel of oil to be exported to countries hostile to us,” Issa Jafari said.

He added that the Strait of Hormuz is the world's energy corridor through which a daily total of 35 million barrels of crude oil is exported.

The lawmaker further said that new sanctions were a plot by the US and its allies to divert global attention from the Occupy Wall Street movement and also to cover up the recent scandal with regards to the US spy drone violating Iran's airspace.

Jafari said while there have been countless conspiracies against Iran over the past 32 years, but the Americans have not learned their lesson and have decided to impose sanctions on Iran's oil.

He added that although the US Senate has passed new anti-Iran sanctions, they should know that Iran in 2011 is much more powerful than it was in 1980.

“America should know that this nation will not compromise over its [national] interests with anybody,” Jafari said.
