Iranian Majlis (Parliament) Speaker Ali Larijani said that the United States cannot break Iranian nation's will of gaining access to "peaceful" nuclear energy by imposing sanctions, the local English language satellite channel Press TV reported on Wednesday.

"The U.S. still seeks to break the Iranian nation's will. The more sanctions they impose against us, the stronger the Iranian nation's will becomes," Larijani was quoted as saying on Tuesday in Iran's western city of Kermanshah.

"These efforts (of sanctioning) have no impact on the will of the Iranian nation," he said, adding that however, it is important to maintain readiness to encounter the U.S. measures against the country, according to Press TV.

"U.S. President Barack Obama cannot stretch his hands to the Iranian nation while the U.S. Congress adopts moves against Iran," he said.

On July 1, U.S. President Barack Obama signed a new Iran sanction bill into law, which was described by him as "striking at the heart" of Iranian government's nuclear ability.
