Dariush Qanbari, member of Parliament’s Security Commission stated, “The wording of the resolution does not indicate limited sanctions and the Americans have imposed their will in this draft.”

Qanbari who was talking to Fars news agency reporter continued, “Appropriate measures should be adopted with regards to countries such as Britain which is quite involved in all conspiracies and pressures against Iran; Britain should pay a price.”
