The Head of Iran’s Parliament National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi elaborated on Iran-US relations 38 years after the fall of the US-backed king of Iran.
“Before the victory of the Islamic Revolution, countries like the US and the UK governed Iran with their around 60,000 advisors residing in Iran, but, with the strong will of the nation, we stood against them and triumphed our Revolution,” said Alaeddin Boroujerdi, the Head of Iran’s Parliament National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, on Thursday in Qom, addressing an event to commemorate the 38th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution of Iran.
Boasting the high level of security in Iran, the senior MP recounted that the head of foreign intelligence services who visit Iran ask questions about how the security and peace are kept in Iran despite all the foreign-motivated plots and conspiracies against the Islamic Republic. “After stabilizing peace within our borders, now we are helping other countries of the region to counter Takfirism.”
Boroujerdi asserted that while it has been two decades since the end of the war waged on Iran by its enemies, there are still other forms of war staged against Iran like what he called “cultural war.” The Iranian MP said that the enemies are capitalizing on the negligence of the officials and targeting the youth of the nation.
“With all mineral and oil riches of Iran, the enemies have impeded the economic growth of the country,” said Boroujerdi ascribing the flaw to the other arena of war against Iran; economic war. Defending the achievements of the JCPOA (the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action signed at the end of the nuclear negotiations between Iran, and the 5+1, in Vienna on July 14, 2015), Boroujerdi maintained that while Iran’s oil and gas sale was hindered during the era of anti-Iran sanctions, now, after the implementation of the JCPOA, the oil output of Iran has reached to 2.4 million barrels a day.
“While we question and impeach ministers, at the same time, we follow the grand scheme to support the administration to tackle the problems of the people,” elaborated the MP on the policies of the parliament in dealing with the government.
Boroujerdi complained that the Americans have not quit their hostilities against Iran, as Trump is almost in war with all countries. “Mexico shares 3000 kilometers of borderline with the US, and Trump says that all this line should be walled, even the Americans are in tensions with China who is a permanent member of the Security Council.”
