Description of Selected News: "Bush demonstrates animosity toward Iran by extending sanctions

WASHINGTON (AFP) -- President George W. Bush on Tuesday extended for one year a range of financial sanctions first imposed on Iran in November 1979, the White House announced in a statement.

"Our relations with Iran have not yet returned to normal," Bush said in a letter to the U.S. House of Representatives.

The original sanctions, imposed by then-president Jimmy Carter, froze assets of Iran's government following the November 1979 takeover of the U.S. embassy in Tehran.

Once again Bush demonstrated his animosity against the Iranian nation by extending the sanctions."
