Rouhani invites nation to ‘think globally, act domestically’

TEHRAN, Aug. 05 (MNA) – President Hassan Rouhani called on the administrative body to think on a global scale but take actions toward promoting domestic production.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani made the remarks Tuesday evening in Tehran at the closing ceremony of 32nd annual meeting of education directors across the country.

“Some think the opposite, that we should think on a domestic scale and apply our ideas globally, which is impossible,” said Rouhani, stressing that the country should take advantage of the positive developments currently happening in the world.

The Iranian president asserted that that the educational system must be founded on ‘independence’, and expressed the need for the modernization of education, the public sphere and the opinions of the younger generation in the country.  

Lauding Iran’s historic nuclear achievement, the president reaffirmed that one must not yield to the demands of major powers but rather move toward attaining its own rights and objectives through logic, reasoning, and the art of negotiation and diplomacy.

Rouhani further noted that while achieving objectives through negotiation is a very difficult and complex procedure in today’s world, it is nevertheless quite ‘possible’.

“The Geneva interim agreement showed that a win-win negotiation is possible, and constructive interaction is the right way to go,” said Rouhani.

The president further added that the peace-loving image of the Iranian nation has been revealed to the world now more than ever.

“Today, only a handful of warmongers inside the United States and Israel are against the nuclear deal; otherwise, all intellectuals and peace-loving nations have hailed Iran [for the deal],” said the president.

Iran and the 5+1 group of countries reached a conclusion on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on July 14 in the Austrian capital of Vienna following days of intense talks over Tehran’s nuclear program.
