Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that the problem and difference between Tehran and Washington will neither be resolved through negotiations nor compromise.
“Our problem with our enemies falls in one sentence. We have differences on this issue that the US tells us to return to 40 years ago (the era of dependence on western powers) and we say that we will not go back and we will continue the path of progress, independence, freedom and democracy,” President Rouhani said, addressing the Iranian people in the Northern town of Lahijan on Wednesday.
“Therefore, today we have no differences with the US that could be settled through negotiations or compromise. We should force the enemy to withdraw and make it understand that the Iranian nation will continue the path of honor and pride,” he underlined.
In relevant remarks last month, President Rouhani said that his country was determined to continue its path toward success and prosperity, underlining that Tehran would never surrender to Washington bullying.
Rouhani said the Iranian nation would never succumb to US demands and would continue its path towards development.
The head of government slammed the United States’ hostile attitude towards Iran since the victory of the Islamic Revolution 40 years ago, saying the era of US domination over Tehran had come to an end.
He said Europe, the US, and some reactionary Arab countries in the region imposed an all-out blockade against Iran but failed to achieve any success due to the Iranian nation’s faith, belief and hope.
