Head of National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of Iran's Parliament Alaeddin Boroujerdi said Sunday that another sanction against Iran would cause no major change in the country, the official IRNA news agency reported.

"A new anti-Iran sanction will only add to the number of the UN sanctions against the country and would cause no remarkable change in Iran," Boroujerdi was quoted as saying.

Tehran has been and would be pursuing a "logical policy," regarding its "peaceful nuclear activities," he said.

Iran would continue its "peaceful nuclear program" even if another sanction is passed against the country, Boroujerdi said, adding Iran "will never abandon its absolute rights in this regard."

The U.S. State Department confirmed Wednesday that six world powers, namely Britain, the United States, France, Russia, Germany and China, discussed new sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program, but no consensus was reached.

The announcement came one day after U.S. President Barack Obama voiced expectations that sanctions against Iran will come in weeks instead of months.

Britain, France, the U.S. and other western countries have been pushing for a fourth round of UN sanctions to restrict Iran's nuclear efforts, which they say are aimed at developing nuclear weapons.

Iran has denied the accusation and stressed its nuclear program is solely for peaceful purpose.
