This holds true for the nonflexible rhetoric of Iranian leaders as it comes closer to the meeting days.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tuesday that tens of resolutions will not stop Iran's nuclear drive.

"We drive our peaceful nuclear program ahead day by day," and if the Western countries issue tens of other resolutions against Iran, the resolutions will not have any impact on our country's will, Ahmadinejad told a group of official IRNA news agency staff.

Iran is under sanction pressures by the United States, European Union and other western countries over its controversial nuclear program which they believe are moving to the atomic weaponry developments. However, Tehran denied the allegations, claiming that its nuclear program is aimed at civilian and peaceful purpose.

In the latest move in December, the United States imposed unilateral sanctions on several Iranian companies, including two banks, an insurance company and a local shipping line accused of involvement in Iran's nuclear energy program.

Dr. Marandi, denounced the sanctions move as a hostile measure taken by the west, especially by the United States.
