President: Government supports armed forces to get stronger
President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday that the government is duty-bound to support the armed forces to boost national defense.
‘We are not pessimistic about the future of the country, the region and the entire world. However, we are not naïve to say that no one plays tricks for us and therefore we have to remain ready and strong,’ Rouhani said.
‘If we want peace, we have to get stronger and if we got weak, it means that we would embrace war,’ the president added.
