Tehran, Dec 17, IRNA-Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said on Sunday that Tehran will consider imposing sanctions on Iran by the UN as 'hostile'.
He made the remarks in a joint press conference with his Armenian counterpart Vartan Oskanyan.
Referring to any sanctions against Iran as "ineffective", Mottaki expressed the hope that the parties to the dispute on Iranian nuclear program would return to negotiation.
"We believe that halt of talks before the US mid-term elections was politically motivated and therefore it should be revised," he said emphasizing the need for negotiations.
He reiterated that there are comprehensive ways to resolve the outstanding issues and ambiguities.
