Iran’s strong missile attack causes US to retreat its threatening stances

TEHRAN, Jan. 16 (MNA) – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that Iran’s missile attack to US’s Ain al-Asad military base in Iraq created a terrible night for the US terrorist forces and caused them [US] to retreat from their threatening positions against the Islamic Republic of Iran.

He made the remarks on Thu. at the 59th General Assembly of Central Bank of Iran (CBI) and said, “a top commander of the country is assassinated by the US terrorist forces and the impact of this assassination is manifested in whole the region and world.”

Assassination of Iran’s IRGC top commander Gen. Qasem Soleimani even affected the exchange rate, stock markets both in Iran and world, Rouhani highlighted.

“In the world of politics we must work hard and I have been thinking about foreign policy every day. As the Chief of the Supreme National Security Council, I take care of security and preventing military encounters on a daily basis. If no daily care is given, the distance between war and peace is only one bullet,” Rouhani said.

Referring to the hard days and the many tragedies and hardships over the past two weeks, the President emphasized, “the people have alleviated their sorrows and troubles by their presence and sympathy, and it is the cultural and national characteristics of the Iranian nation.”

The enemies created a situation, overcoming which was not –and will not be- possible without the resistance and steadfastness of an integrated nation, he added.

The president referred to the consequences of assassination of an Iranian military commander by the Americans in the region and the world, saying, "yhis martyrdom even affected the prices of the currency, oil, and stock markets inside out outside of the country, and influenced the whole region psychologically, intellectually and politically”.

People from Kashmir to Africa sympathized and mourned his General Soleimani’s martyrdom in an unprecedented move, he stressed.

"The United States is oppressing and carrying out acts of aggression against all countries around the world, and some may respond with words, but the Islamic Republic of Iran waged military strike against their base for one night and kept the Pentagon awake for 24 hours,” he said.

It was very important that we forced the United States to retreat from their threats, adding, "the US president had said that if Iran responded to the assassination of Gen. Soleimani, 52 important sites, including Iran's cultural and historical centers, would be targeted, but when the Islamic Republic of Iran attacks this military base, his tone and program change and he officially pulls back.”

Referring to the tragic crash of the Ukrainian passenger plane that killed 176 dear educated Iranians, the president continued, "a nation was stricken with grief and there was no one in the country who did not sympathize.”

Iranian nation will not easily be deviated from its goals. Iranian nation is a great nation that chooses its way and stands well. Of course, in the path of resistance, there are injuries and difficulties, which is natural.

Expressing that a superpower has violated international regulations and officially declared that it wants to fight this system and people, he emphasized, "After the US actions, it became clear for themselves and the world that their program was completely wrong. And this is not something to be just inferred, but the US President had told leaders of other countries that the Iranian regime would not resist for more than three months with the new sanctions and maximum pressure”.

Referring to the US’ actions against the Islamic Republic of Iran that started since their withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on May 2018, he said, "is our nation stronger and stronger against this conspiracy today? Or weaker?”

"The government, the parliament, the leadership and various sections of the constitution have powers that must be exercised within the framework of the constitution; of course, there are complications that we have to consider,” he said.

The president referred to foreign policy as another important issue, saying, "Communication with the outside world and foreign policy are important and we cannot say that everyone is our enemy. One of the tasks that people voted for us was to bring down the tension. To say that the world does not treat us well is not possible. We have to see what we can do and is there a way or not? There are disagreements in this regard”.

 “The economy is intertwined with security and foreign policy,” he said, adding, "the government is working hard in all these fields for the welfare of the people and the country”.
