TEHRAN – Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani has called on the nation to use the economic sanctions against the country as an opportunity to redouble their efforts to bring complete political and economic independence to the country.

Sanctions are not entirely harmless, but if they are viewed as an opportunity they will lead to economic independence, Larijani said in the city of Karaj, west of Tehran, on Wednesday.
He also emphasized that economic growth is the driving force behind job creation.
Elsewhere in his remarks, the parliament speaker called for unity and national cohesion in the country
