"Great powers have plans not only for us, but for their neighbors as well. The solution to political problems is not slogans, we need to find the way out,” asserted president Rouhani among university students on Sunday.
He added "My experience which I’ve had from the days of the Islamic uprising and in different offices tells me that extremism has always hurt us; and there is no difference between the right and the left wing in that.”
The president stated "What I have made out is that the contrastive approach to the world cannot be a successful measure. The incumbent administration’s policy is to have constructive cooperation. No sooner than we say we want to cooperate with the world there are some who say we want to make a deal with the world. Shall we be brandishing our dagger at the world?”
"Is it possible for a country to say it does not need scientific cooperation with the world,” Rouhani required and stated "Why do they accuse any professor of espionage who talks with a foreigner? We have to help these professors. They are one of our means of communication with the world.”
"There was someone speaking at a meeting who was saying that we have to do something so that English is taught in no scientific environment. I do not know what that means,” the president stated.
