Hassan Rouhani who was speaking in the national protest marking the 35th anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution called the act of threatening Iran as "standing against the glory of a history.”
"Threatening us is worthless and childish. The language of threat goes against the law and manners. Those who threaten need a new pair of glasses,” the president asserted.
He added "We try to improve our relations with neighbors. We believe that we must join hands against terrorism and those who created problems in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan. We have to think of regional stability and security. We must eliminate the negative image created by enemies about the Islamic Republic. Regional states may know that anti-Iranian sentiment is a lie and we do not mean to do anybody wrong.”
President Rouhani further said "We have to protect the achievements of the revolution with the least cost. We will stand against trespassers with all we got and we will make them regret themselves.”
Pointing to the ongoing nuclear talks between Iran and the P5+1, he said "Let them know that our negotiations with the P5+1 relies on the Iranian nation’s goodwill and love for peace. We meant by the negotiations to say that the unjust sanctions have been illegal and wrong and that the world cannot go on keeping these sanctions.”
"Our progress toward the peaceful nuclear technology will be perpetual. The destiny of those who threaten will be like historical trespassers. The nuclear talks are a historic test for Europe and America,” the president added.
