Iran raps US sanctions on nuclear scientists

Iran raps US sanctions on nuclear scientists
IRAN  - The Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) dismissed as “a futile attempt” the US’ new decision to impose sanction on two Iranian nuclear scientists, stressing that such hostile measures would by no means undermine the Islamic Republic’s nuclear progress and programs.

In a statement released on Thursday, the AEOI said the "desperate attempt and unwise move" from the decision-makers at the White House to blacklist two Iranian nuclear scientists reveals the continuation of the US government's hostile approach to Iran.

Such measures will not disturb the Iranian youths' determination to achieve the Islamic Republic's goals, the AEOI emphasized, reminding the ill-wishers that their confrontation with Iran that runs counter to the international principles and law will only strengthen the Iranian researchers' resolve and will undermine the position and prestige of Iran's enemies in the world.

The Iranian hardworking researchers, especially those involved in the nuclear industry, consider such futile attempts as a sign of the enemy's failure, the statement added.

The reaction came after US State Secretary Mike Pompeo announced in a tweet on Thursday that Washington is ending the sanctions waiver for JCPOA-related projects in Iran, effective in 60 days.

"I am also sanctioning two leaders of Iran's nuclear enrichment program - Majid Agha'i and Amjad Sazgar. Iran's scientists need to make a choice: pursue peaceful work outside of the proliferation realm, or risk being sanctioned," Pompeo added.
