Iran’s Revolutionary Guard dismisses UN sanctions

Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard says it’s “not worried” by the latest wave of U.N. sanctions imposed over Tehran’s controversial nuclear program.

The force’s senior commander, Gen. Hossein Salami, says Iran has shaped its defense capabilities “on the basis of worst-case scenarios” and that the new sanctions won’t stop Iran’s nuclear program.

His remarks — reported on Monday by the official IRNA news agency — were the Guard’s first reaction to the latest U.N. measure.

The new sanctions include a freeze on the assets of 40 additional companies and organizations — including 15 linked to the Guard and 22 involved in nuclear or ballistic missile activities.
