Tehran, Jan 31, IRNA -- Atomic Energy Organization of Iran announced on Friday that imposing sanctions on the AEOI's chief Ali Akbar Salehi will in no way affect the country's peaceful nuclear policies and activities.
The AEOI wrote in a tweet on Friday following the US' unwise move regarding Salehi that the oppressive sanctions will further encourage Iran's nuclear scientists to make the US' hostile policies ineffective.
On Thursday, the US Treasury Department announced sanctions against Iran’s atomic agency and its chief Ali Akbar Salehi.
American citizens are generally prohibited from conducting business with the blacklisted entities, and any assets they possess subject to US jurisdiction have been frozen.
