If Biden lives up to his commitments, we will fulfil ours: Iran President

If Biden lives up to his commitments, we will fulfil ours: Iran President

Tehran (ISNA) - Reviewing the victory of the Iranian nation in the three important historical periods of the Islamic Movement and Revolution, the war with Iraq and the economic war of the enemies, Iran’s President emphasized that no one in the world should think that they can destroy the Iranian nation with sanctions and economic war. The Iranian nation continues on its path with power and at the same time welcomes the other side's submission to the law.

Speaking on Wednesday at a cabinet meeting, Dr. Hassan Rouhani referred to the beginning of the Biden administration in the United States in the near future, and said, "If Biden says that the United States wants to obey the law and fulfill its obligations, our answer is clear and simple and we say that if you fulfill all your obligations, we will fulfill all our obligations as well".

The President added, "If you do not do so, we will not bow down to you. If you do fulfill your obligations, we don't owe you anything. You used to do something illegal, now you have stopped doing something illegal, you have regretted and realized that you were wrong".

Dr. Rouhani stated that the Iranian nation in three important historical stages, namely in the Islamic Revolution and Movement, the Imposed War with Iraq and the economic war, was able to win against the world with resistance and unity, and said, "The Iranian nation was alone in the first stage, namely the movement and revolution, the eight-year imposed war and the three-year economic war, but they stood their ground and resisted until victory".

In the honor of January 9, the anniversary of the uprising of the people of Qom against the oppressive regime, the President stated, "January 9, 1978 was the beginning of the movement of the people against the dependent and corrupt regime of that time".

The President pointed out, "The resistance, endurance, patience and will of the people against the dependent regime since January 9 bore fruit a year later in January 1979, and the Shah was forced to flee the country".

Dr. Rouhani described the era of Sacred Defense as another period in the resistance and victory of the Iranian nation and said, "One year after the start of the imposed war by the superpowers and their mercenaries in September 1980, the first great victories were achieved in October 1981 with Operation Samen ul-Hojaj and breaking the siege of Abadan, and this process continued until the final victory".

The President added, "At this time, a year of intense resistance of the people against foreign aggression, put the Iranian nation on the path to victory".

Dr. Rouhani described the year 2018 and the beginning of the imposed economic war as another period of resistance and victory of the people and said, "In 2018, someone who was the head of the great world power claimed that he could overthrow the Iranian political system with severe economic sanctions, and that his actions would bear fruit until 11 February 2019, but at this point,  again, the result of the people's perseverance, patience and resistance became apparent a year later, so that in mid-2019, inflation growth slowed down and relative economic peace prevailed in the country".

The President added, "Undoubtedly, if the same trend of 2019 had continued, we would have witnessed other successes, but at the end of 2019, we faced a new crisis with the outbreak of Coronavirus".

Dr. Rouhani stated that the government has been able to run the country in unusual and war conditions, and said, "With the measures that have been taken, both production and development activities are going on and people's lives are going on with difficulty, and people do not have any problem with their basic goods".

"Despite all the problems and limitations it faces, the government has provided relief packages to the underprivileged, including a monthly package for 60 million people and several relief packages due to the COVID-19 condition," he said.

Dr. Rouhani emphasized, "The main goal of the government in all these periods has been to provide a minimum for the underprivileged, while in addition to these measures, we have continued developmental activities and every day we see numerous inaugurations throughout the country".

Dr. Rouhani pointed out, "With the actions of the government, people with low energy consumptions, who are mainly in the low-income classes, have been provided with free water, electricity and gas".

"This year, despite sanctions, economic warfare and coronavirus, we are witnessing economic growth in the first six months, and we hope to have positive economic growth by the end of the year," said the President.
