President Hassan Rouhani who was speaking at a conference in Tehran on Saturday said that the Iranian ruling party is not afraid of the West’s economic sanctions.
"Sanctions are an injustice against the nation’s rights,” he asserted, adding "We must fight the oppressor and make him back down. We will use all of our power and waste no time.”
The President stated "Our kind Leader has stood by this movement since the starts. We have been using his guidelines all the way through.”
Providing comments on his administration’s foreign policy he said, we have taken on the dire diplomatic role in order to stop trespassers that violate the nation’s rights and to contribute to regional peace.
"This was done due to the sensitivity of the circumstances, our relations with the world, and the violations that had been done to us. Anti-humanitarian sanctions had been imposed on us. Therefore, it was necessary for our diplomatic commanders and soldiers to disregard day and night in this battlefield and to take on an enormous task," Rouhani said.
