The British government has launched a new round of hostile actions against the Iranian nation as it is bent on securing a European Union sanction on Iran's oil exports.
The British government is mustering all its strength to get the 27-member European bloc agree on imposing sanctions on Iran's oil industry, as the British Foreign Secretary William Hague said he was confident that EU countries would approve of sanctions being imposed on Iran's oil exports.
In an interview with Sky News television, Hague said the new round of sanctions would be aimed at impeding Iran's nuclear program.
This comes as Iran has repeatedly maintained that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes and there has been no evidence indicating otherwise.
The assassination of one of Iran's nuclear scientists, Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, on Wednesday was the West's latest hostile act aimed at hindering Iran's nuclear program.
Iran has accused Britain, the US, and Israel's spy agency Mossad of being behind the assassination. Iran's intelligence minister, Heydar Moslehi, has announced that the Islamic Republic of Iran will retaliate and the US, Britain, and the Mossad will receive a crushing response.
The stupid saber-rattling and terrorist attacks against Iran under the pretext that Iran's nuclear program is military-oriented come as Iran is an active member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
British Labor MP, Jeremy Corbyn, has warned against sanctions against Iran as he has urged Britain and the US to stop their scandalous campaign of making baseless accusations against Iran and it nuclear program.
“Western and UN-imposed sanctions against Iran are likely to backfire against Western economies and interests with any oil embargo likely to be followed by a threatened Iranian naval blockade of the Straits of Hormuz,” said Corbyn.
Furthermore, the Independent revealed on Saturday that, in his private talks with Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah, British Prime Minister David Cameron has asked him to increase his country's oil production.
