New US administration will return to the regulations itself/ Some inside purify the US for free by undermining gov’t, ignoring the facts to prepare ground for themselves in the 1400 elections/ Promoting despair in society a ‘national treason’
The President called the closure and severe restrictions in the cities with red status a serious warning and stressed the need for public responsibility in the process of combating coronavirus and stressed, "From Saturday, with the implementation of the comprehensive plan to impose dynamic restrictions against coronavirus, cities with red conditions, are almost closed, except for emergencies, and orange cities are half-closed".
Speaking on Wednesday at cabinet session, Dr Hassan Rouhani said, "Instructions and resolutions related to the comprehensive plan that has been announced are the rule of law and the entire country must implement these regulations".
He added, "We all know that shutdown is not the main solution to the coronavirus problem, but the main solution is strict social discipline".
Stating that the danger is serious, Dr Rouhani added, "The imposition of severe restrictions in cities with a red status is a serious warning".
He also went on to state, "From next Saturday in the red zones, not meeting must be held with more than 15 people".
We have plans for those who do not have fixed salaries, said Rouhani, adding, "We have done -and will do- everything we can to reduce the economic pressure on the people".
Referring to improving economic and social conditions, the President said, "Some think that when we say things will get better, we mean we will be negotiating with the United States, but this is not the case".
He stated that the new US administration will return to the regulations itself, he continued, "With future conditions, we will move from the atmosphere of threat created by this rebel government (Trump Administration) to the atmosphere of opportunity".
Dr Rouhani continued, "Since the current US administration entered the economic war with Iran in 2018, we have been under economic siege and faced with economic terrorism. In recent years, we have been facing a bullying government".
Calling on some people inside the country to be careful to use correct terms when criticising the government, he said, "The US Administration is a criminal and terrorist one, but some inside the country purify the US for free by undermining the government and ignoring the facts to prepare ground for themselves in the 1400 elections".
Emphasising that promoting despair in the society is a 'national treason', the President said, "Let the people see the facts, this US government is criminal towards the Iranian nation and all nations, why don't you tell the facts to the people".
"Everything the United States has been pursuing internationally, politically, legally and morally has completely failed," continued Dr Rouhani.
Stating that everyone from Democrats to Republicans knows that maximum US pressure on Iran has failed, he said, "During these years, we have continued our cooperation and interaction with the world despite all political and economic pressures of the United States".
President Rouhani added, "The implementation and completion of unfinished plans are the result of the opportunity that was brought by the nuclear deal".
He also went on to state, "In the world of politics, we see no problem in criticising, contradicting votes and expressing new opinions, but the opposition must not cover up America's crimes and distort the global realities to be fed to the people".
