The new U.N. sanctions resolution against Iran has no value and should be thrown in the waste bin like a used handkerchief, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Wednesday.
"These resolutions have no value... It is like a used handkerchief that should be thrown in the waste bin," he told reporters when asked about the fourth round of the U.N. Security Council sanctions resolution imposed on Iran.
He was speaking during a visit to Tajikstan.
Earlier, Ali Asghar Soltanieh, Iran's envoy to the U.N. nuclear watchdog in Vienna, said that "Nothing will change. The Islamic Republic of Iran will continue uranium enrichment activities."
In Tehran, a senior lawmaker said Iranian MPs would review the level of the Islamic Republic's cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
"The parliament will review Iran's cooperation level with the agency as an extra-urgent matter," Alaeddin Boroujerdi was quoted as saying by the official IRNA news agency.
Iran's parliament has the power to oblige the government to change its cooperation with the IAEA, as it did in 2006 after the Vienna-based agency voted to report Iran to the U.N. Security Council.
Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman said the U.N. sanctions resolution was a "wrong" measure, Iran's Arabic language al-Alam television reported.
"The resolution was a wrong move ... it was not a constructive step ... to resolve the nuclear issue. It will make the situation more complicated," Ramin Mehmanparast said.
