Tehran, YJC. Announcement signed by 200 Majlis members criticizes UK’s recent sanctions on Iranian figures.

The Iranian parliament Majlis has criticized the UK for imposing sanctions on a number of Iranian figures by Britain’s HM Treasury in an announcement signed by 200 lawmakers.

The Islamic Consultative Assembly News Agency reports that the announcement goes "The British government whose record of animosity toward Iran is globally known and whose unrelated interference with our domestic affairs has become clear to all in past decades has in recent days imposed sanctions, as it would say, a number of incumbent and former officials of the Islamic Republic of Iran, including two members of parliament.”

It adds "Such an action although lacking influence on our domestic affairs, shows support for non-commitment by members of the P5+1 to claims made in the Geneva agreement, showing that they will never stop their animosity with the Islamic Iran.”

"We hope that such actions by the P5+1 members which have been witnessed for many times especially by the US and UK increases the sensitiveness of the government’s negotiation group, providing grounds not only for greater action in coping with such interventions, but also in mustering all powers to tap the country’s domestic capabilities to meet people’s needs,” the announcement concludes.
