Neither previous, nor current sanctions can hinder the development of Iran's maritime sector, Deputy Minister of Roads and Urban Development and Managing Director of Ports and Maritime Organization Mohammad Rastad said at the International Maritime & Offshore Technologies Exhibition, held in Kish Island, Trend reports via Iranian media.
Iran has great potential and no country can stop Iran from implementing its potential, he said.
Presently, many say that the sanctions are unjust and of course, Iran, as before, can deal with the obstacles and keep its development, Rastad said commenting on the organizations and countries opposing the US sanctions on Iran.
Iran offers the potential of the Chabahar port to the friendly neighboring and Central Asian countries, he noted.
