Iran to turn threats into opportunities: Intelligence Minister
Tabriz, Iran has the ability to turn threats into opportunities, the country's intelligence minister said, emphasizing Iran will deal with the 'enemies' pressure'.
'Development will only occur after passing through difficulties,' Mahmoud Alavi said on Tuesday.
'We should impose our will on the enemies by adopting smart solutions to the problems and with resisting hardships,' Alavi added.
Emphasizing that 'the enemies', particularly US, will not be able to achieve their ends through threats, the minister said Iranian people will confront 'the enemies' in case of any problem.
Highlighting the importance of security in every field of activity, he said, 'Security is a prerequisite for cultural, scientific, media and investment activities.'
After withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal in May, the US President Donald Trump has re-imposed economic sanctions on Iran.
