Iran's Ahmadinejad dubs sanctions 'childish'

Updated at: 1250 PST, Saturday, March 14, 2009

TEHRAN: President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad dismissed as a "childish move" international sanctions on Iran, a day after Washington extended one of many sets of sanctions on the country. "If world powers had not blocked the road, Iran would have not become a nuclear power nation and would have not a presence in space," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying by the official news agency in the Gulf port city of Assalouyeh. "They thought that by childish and harassing moves they can stop a great nation's scientific path towards perfection," he added inaugurating a gas refinery there."You take your decisions and we do our work, since knowingly or unknowingly you have opened our nation's path to progress, and you too small to block our path," he said.
