Iran favours peace, stability, security in world, constructive interaction with all countries/ Certainly today is different from 2015; Today, we are stronger, more powerful than ever/ If the P5+1 returns to its full obligations, we will do so the same hour
Emphasising that the Islamic Republic of Iran wants peace, stability and security in the world and constructive interaction with all countries that want to choose the path of interaction, the President said, "Today we are more powerful than ever and we are not happy with Mr Biden taking office at all, but we are happy that the most rebellious and law-breaking person in America is leaving".
Speaking on Wednesday in a cabinet session, President stressed that, "Nurses sacrificed their lives for people's health," congratulating the birthday of Her Holiness Zainab (PBUH) and Nurse's Day.
The President also said, "The efforts of the medical staff and the good cooperation of the people in the implementation of health protocols forced the third wave of COVID-19 to back down, and the statistics show less cases".
Dr Rouhani added, "Undoubtedly, we will do our best to produce the domestic vaccine for coronavirus and buy foreign vaccines at the same time".
"The unity of the seminary and the university and the proximity of these two institutions to each other is of great importance," said Rouhani.
He continued, "It is one of the honors of the Islamic Republic to have the days of "interaction and dialogue with the world" and "a world against violence and extremism" in the Iranian calendar".
Dr Rouhani added, "Iran is against violence and extremism just in words, but in practice, has made every effort in this regard".
"In 2013 and 2017, the people of Iran basically voted for moderation and morality and declared their opposition to any extremism and violence," said the President.
Dr Rouhani also went on to state, "Iran's power today in the fields of defense, missile and nuclear power is incomparable to the day before the signing of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)".
He added, "Today, the sword of the United Nations Security Council and PMD resolutions is not over our heads," saying, "Today, in the field of nuclear weapons, the power of our country is different from those days. In those days we had only one or two types of centrifuges and today we have IR8 and IR6 centrifuges and we are more powerful than ever".
"At the time of the signing of the JCPOA, the United States had the support of the Security Council, but today it is left alone and forced to unite with a small island," said Rouhani.
He continued, "During this time we have shown that no power can deviate us from our path and no pressure can break us," adding, "While today the entire world had understood that we are on our own two feet and nobody can break our nation, if the P5+1 returns to their full commitments, we will return to our full commitments the same hour".
"The most rebellious and law-breaking man became president in the United States, and the pressure on the Iranian people comes from an arrogance that did not abide himself by anything," said the President.
Stating that the next US administration knows that the way is clear for him, President Rouhani said, "We hope that the American people's vote for Mr Biden will be a way for the new US administration to become law-abiding, not law-breaking and treaty-breaking".
