The Latest from Iran (19 December): "The Worst Economic Conditions"

0640 GMT: It was Minister of Culture Mohammad Hosseini's turn on Tuesday night to put out the ritual declaration of the Islamic Republic's defiant triumph over economic pressure, “The Iranian nation has a global reputation for patience and persistence and is more experienced than before to weather the sanctions, therefore the United States’ efforts will be futile. Imposing sanctions on Iran will harm the strategic interests of the US in the long run."

Others did not get the message, however. Hojatoleslam Jalal Yahyazadeh, a member of Parliament's Economics Committee, said that Iran currently finds itself in "the worst economic conditions". He warned that the sanctions regime may continue until 2016.
