Speaker calls for turning sanctions into opportunities

Bandar Abbas, Sept 22, IRNA – Despite the disadvantages they bring for the country, the sanctions can be used as opportunities to make use of the hidden capacities, Iran's Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said on Saturday.

Larijani made the remarks speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a ceremony in Bandar Abbas International Airport to launch a new radar system.

The sanctions on the country require more attention to be paid to domestic capacities, the Iranian speaker said. However, he noted that the methods should be changed.

Some government officials become disappointed when facing tough conditions, Larijani said, adding that this is not a proper way of governing.

The Parliament speaker arrived in the Iranian port city of Bandar Abbas on Friday night to attend a major parade of Iran's armed forces. He left Bandar Abbas for Tehran later in the day.
