“For the past 40 years, the Army has always been at the side of the Iranian nation and the Islamic Revolution, making sacrifices to ensure territorial integrity and to ensure the independence of Iran,” Iranian President Hasan Rouhani said in a statement Thursday.
Rohani also made statements during the parade of the Army forces on the occasion of the National Army Day in Tehran. He also mentioned the role of the Army in strengthening the victory of the Islamic Revolution.
“The Army, the IRGC and all other Armed Forces stood by the country to rescue, aid and defend their land,” he said, referring to the army’s role in providing assistance to floods in recent floods.
Elsewhere, he considered the US view of IRGC as a terrorist group. The Iranian nation sees it as a part of it and insulting the IRGC is equivalent to insulting the great Iranian nation and its Armed Forces.
He condemned the United States and the Zionist regime’s intervention in regional affairs: “The great powers of the United States and the Zionists, in particular, do not want stability, unity, security, and brotherhood in the region,” he said.
“The United States is against any force that does not obey it, is not under its control, and prevents it from reaching its goals,” Rouhani said. Ir The United States is resentful for failing to achieve the planned program due to resistance for the region. The method chosen by the US against the Iranian nation and the Armed Forces is wrong. ”
He also highlighted the role of the Iranian Armed Forces in securing security in the region and in combating terrorism in Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, and Syria.
Addressing regional nations, the Iranian President said that Iran’s Armed Forces should stand up against the attackers, not against you and your national interests.
