President of the Islamic Republic of Iran Dr Hassan Rouhani made explicit remarks against Trump at the meeting of the heads of Iranian missions abroad, saying: "Iran's power is deterrent and we have no fight or war with anybody but the enemies must understand well that war with Iran is the mother of all wars and peace with Iran is the mother of all peace. We have never been intimidated and will respond threat with threat".
(AhlulBayt News Agency) - President of the Islamic Republic of Iran Dr Hassan Rouhani made explicit remarks against Trump at the meeting of the heads of Iranian missions abroad, saying: "Iran's power is deterrent and we have no fight or war with anybody but the enemies must understand well that war with Iran is the mother of all wars and peace with Iran is the mother of all peace. We have never been intimidated and will respond threat with threat".
At the meeting that was held on Sunday, Dr Rouhani also said: "Today, speaking with US has no meaning except surrender and end of people's achievements. Mr Trump! We are the people of dignity and guarantor of security of the waterway of the region throughout the history. Don't play with the lion's tail; you will regret it".
"Foreign policy is the most important issue after national security," said Rouhani adding: " Foreign policy is the manifestation of national sovereignty".
He also said: "Preventing government from interfering in elections is a success in domestic policy and preventing foreign intervention is a success in foreign policy".
"The government is responsible to pave the way for private sector's activity in the country," said the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
He also added: "Diplomats are the ambassadors of our system and the representatives of Iranian history, culture and nation outside of the country," continuing: "Ambassadors are responsible towards each and every one of the citizens".
Dr Rouhani also went on to say: "The current US administration is fighting the world and its own national interests at the same time".
"It is now clearer than ever that the White House is against international law and the World of Islam and the Palestinian nation," he added, saying: "The current US President is both a threat and an opportunity".
Stating that "Today, it is clearer that the Zionist Regime is primarily aimed at aggression and occupation," the President said: "They are blatantly saying that Palestine is not an Islamic country".
"What we were telling our neighbours and the Arab World about Israel's nature is now proved," said Rouhani, adding: "There is nobody in the world as anti-human-rights as the Zionist Regime".
He continued: "They have been saying that Israel is the model of democracy in the region; today, it was proved that it is the centre of apartheid".
He added: "The Iranian nation stood up to the puppet dictator for its freedom and independence," saying: "There is nobody more interventionist than the Us against Iranian revolution and people".
"Overthrow, disintegration, boycott and weakening are the main US policies against the Islamic Republic of Iran," added Rouhani.
The President also went on to say: "During the Holy Defence years, they mobilised the entire world, except a few countries, against the Iranian nation and they failed to achieve their goals".
He continued: "War grew our army bigger and the revolutionary young soldiers of the IRGC became a new military power".
Stating that "The enemy failed in its conspiracy to break and disintegrate Iran, the third conspiracy was imposing sanctions under the pretext of nuclear activity," he continued: "Whenever Europe was approaching an agreement with us, the White House didn't let them".
He said: "The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) signalled the failure of 12-year plot against Iran's nuclear technology," adding: "What US always does is conspiracy against Iran and the great Iranian nation".
Dr Rouhani also went on to say: "Iran's strategic depth stretches in east to the subcontinent, in the west to the Mediterranean, in the south to the Red Sea, and in the north to the Caucasus".
"The nature of Iranian culture is peace-seeking and helping neighbouring countries against killers," added the President saying: "We rooted out ISIS and saved the peoples of the region and we are proud of ourselves for that".
He continued: "You supplied ISIS killers with weapons and money and now you claim advocacy of human rights?"
"Iran's influence in the region is historical and based on its civilisations," Rouhani said adding: "Our commitment to the region comes from our Islamic and Iranian identity".
He also said: "We defeated terrorists at the expense of our young people's blood," adding: "JCPOA was a unanimous decision made by all pillars of our system".
"The first goal of the Us was to make us violate the nuclear deal," he added, saying: "They incited IAEA but they failed again".
"The third unsuccessful step of the US was to convince Europe by changing the deal," continued the President saying: "Trump tried a lot but in the end he had to exit the deal alone".
Stating that "Iran acted wisely against Trump's inexperience," President Rouhani said: "The United States opposes the whole world against JCPOA".
Describing sanctions as the fifth conspiracy of the US against the Iranian nation, the President added: "The US is now making a miscalculation by putting pressure on the Iranian nation to tire them and turn them into a rioting people".
"They certainly don't know anything about the Iranian nation's culture and don't know that Iranian nation will never and under no circumstances be anybody's slave".
"The isolated US mustn't be let to gain power again," said the President adding: "We are the land of science and wisdom, and look for good relationship with the world".
He also said: "In the new situation, we are seeking to reform our relations with Saudi Arabia, UAE and Bahrain".
We want the best relations with our neighbours, he continued, adding: "The motto of "Neither the East nor the West" has contradictions with what the East and the West do".
"Our relations with Russia are based on neighbourliness and mutual interests," Dr Rouhani continued.
He said: "Anybody who knows a little politics doesn't say he will stop Iran's oil export," stating: " We have a lot of straits; Hormuz is just one of them".
"Mr Trump! We are the people of dignity and guarantor of security of the waterway of the region throughout the history. Don't play with the lion's tail; you will regret it".
He also said: "You declare war against the Iranian nation and at the same time speak of support?," adding: "Know your words and their consequences".
Stating that we have two ways; surrender or resist, the President said: "Today, speaking with US has no meaning except surrender and end of people's achievements".
