CU QOTZBADEH speaking: "Any change in the hardness or harshness that may be imposed on the hostages, it is only the government of Canada that is going to beresponsible for it..... Therefore, we even don'tbother to protest what Canada has done; but we indicate that sooner or later here or anywhere in the world, Canada will pay for the spoilation of the sovereignty of Iran. We needed, the United Islamic world, to getaway from the American scheme of such sanctions and to rally behind us in order to make it absolutely impossible for the United States to contemplate economic sanctions. This objective has been fully attained as well and this time I can declare that the contemplating of economic sanctions against Iran is notpossible any more for the United States."
