It is natural that US cannot tolerate the Islamic Revolution because it knows Iran’s great power in the West Asian region, said Rouhani while addressing Feb. 11 rallies in Tehran.
The US has been dreaming of a return to Iran since 41 years ago, highlighted Rouhani.
Americans had chosen the monarchy for Iran and wanted to preserve it so they are objecting to why the Iranian nation chose their own path, he said, adding “US says they we must return to 41 years ago but we say we don’t do so … therefore, we see hostility of US has emerged during the past 41 years in various forms.”
He called on the Iranian nation to boost unity, saying, “if we are united, America will be defeated and economic growth will happen.”
He said that both diplomacy and resistance is needed in confronting enemies. “Martyr Soleimani was both a general in the battlefield and a senior diplomat in negotiations. He was martyred en route to talks with Iraqi Prime Minister not en route to battlefield,” he said. “Martyr Soleimani was not seeking war and instability in the region; US and Israel are lying about him. He was after creating stability and offered security to the region.”
Rouhani praised the achievements of the country in the defense field during the past several years. “Before the Islamic Revolution, 95% of required arms were imported to the country while today, all of our needs are fulfilled domestically; this means we have scientific capability and military might.”
