Tehran, YJC. Lawmaker says Obama’s opposition to more sanctions on Iran is to defend the US reputation.

Speaking in interview with Islamic Consultative Assembly News Agency (ICANA), Alaeddin Boroujerdi said "In order to save the US prestige, Obama threatened the pro-Iranian sanctions to using the veto.”

The Chairman of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Majlis pointed to the US Senate draft for sanctions on Iran and said "Due to the US commitment to the Geneva accord we must wait and see how reliable US leaders are; so this stage will be only one to test the righteousness of the US and the West.”

"Such actions by US senators indicate the influence of the Zionist lobby in the congress,” he stated, adding "Surely if new sanctions are considered by the US Congress or Senate, the Geneva agreement will be driven out of its course.”

Expressing pity over the Zionist influence on the US policy, Boroujerdi stated that the violation of the Geneva agreement will make it possible for the Geneva accord to be considered as non-existent.

"The US international prestige is bound to the Geneva agreement. if the US does not show its adherence to the agreements, its prestige with nations in the entire world will suffer more,” he stated.

26 US diplomats have made a move to pose more sanctions on Iran in contempt of the Six Majors’ nuclear deal with the country which was recently made in Geneva.

Meanwhile the White House Press Secretary has said that any such sanctions will be vetoed by the President.

Reports say that on the other side, 10 senators have demanded a break in passing new sanctions on Iran.
