Enemies failed in overthrowing Establishment: Rouhani

TEHRAN, Aug. 26 (MNA) – President Hassan Rouhani said that the resistance of the Iranian nation in the face of hostile pressures foiled enemies plot to bring down the Islamic Republic.

“Despite all pressure and difficulties, people showed resistance. The nation tolerated hardships in their lives but did not surrender to the enemy. Enemies sought to push the Establishment to the point of collapse,” Rouhani said in a cabinet session on Wednesday.

The fact that the US is suffering consecutive defeats in the UN Security Council is due to the resistance of the Iranian nation, Rouhani said, adding that had not been for his resilient spirit, enemies would have returned all UNSC resolutions against Iran back in 2018.

Rouhani said that the country saw a 900,000 billion rials (nearly $40 billion) decrease in revenues but despite all these Iran is still standing strong with its internal markets being more stable than that of even Europe.

"We saw this amid the coronavirus pandemic; thet stood in lines [to buy daily supplies] but we didn’t, they did not have vacant beds in hospitals and received people in corridors of hospitals but we always have had vacant beds. They faced problems for providing medicine and conducted aerial piracy to acquire face masks while our knowledge-based companies and industrial units were not even one day off and managed to solve the issues very quickly.”
