Next US admin. to surrender to Iranian nation: Rouhani

TEHRAN, Nov. 05 (MNA) – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that the next US administration, whether Democrat or Republican, will give in to the will of the Iranian people.

“It is not important who wins the US election; the next government of America will surrender to the Iranian nation,” Rouhani said in a ceremony held on Thursday to inaugurate the first phase of a water transfer project from the Persian Gulf to the central Iranian provinces. 

He noted that the next US administration has "no choice but to surrender to the law, regulations and pressure of public opinions and to the patience and resistance of this great nation."

The President said that the hard times that the government and people suffered in the past three days has been ‘unprecedented’. “We were always under pressure but this was an economic war. They increased the sanctions amid the coronavirus pandemic.”

"During this period, there was a person in the White House who brutally intensified sanctions and war, even during the coronavirus era. They did not adhere to any human principles, human rights and international laws and regulations, but at the same time I am sure that the Iranian nation will ultimately win."

Describing the project as an ‘unbelievable’ one, President Rouhani said in the inauguration ceremony that he will call this water transfer line as the ‘line of hope’ because “it is not just water but hope that reach the central plateau.”

All farmers, industries, and people will gain access to a sustainable water resource by this project, he said, congratulating the opening of the project to the Iranian nation.

Iran was able to take ‘giant steps’ in spite of all the pressures and sanctions of the ‘terrorist’ US government, Rouhani said, noting that such sanctions have not hampered national projects.

Talking about the project, Rouhani said the overall length of this giant water transfer line is about 800 kilometers, 305 kilometers of which is being inaugurated today.    

He hoped that the remaining phases of the project would soon come on stream.

The President called this project one of the most huge projects, and stated, "Of course, very important and historical projects will be put into operation by the end of the year and early next year, the restoration of Lake Urmia and the huge plan to transfer oil from Goreh to Jask is one of them".

The President said that in the future plan, 50% of the water consumption of the people of Bandar Abbas will be provided through seawater desalination, adding, "This is a very big and huge work for the life of the people and the development and industry of the country and it is very important."
