Speaking to his fans in Hamadan on Sunday, Aliakbar Velayati said "If the US continues its old domineering attitude, the Islamic Republic of Iran’s position will be the same as ever.”
He asserted "Neither in the Islamic world nor in the third world do I know a country with such might as Iran and such bright future. All capacities must be used as best as possible. They must not remain vacant.”
"We must work things to a state when other countries would look for relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran, that comes when we prove our effect on global affairs,” he stated.
He added "We can see now that both enemies and friends of Iran admit the fact that there is no problem in the Middle East which could be solved without Iran. We must save this opportunity and move even further than that to become a globally influential country.”
