President Rouhani: US, its allies furious at their defeat in Syria
Tehran, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Saturday that the United States and its allies are furious at their defeat in Syria.
US aggression on the region will lead to nothing but annihilation and destruction, Rouhani said while asking whether the US, the Zionist regime of Israel and their allies especially the UK and France have not learned a lesson from the incidents taking place over the past 17 years.
They tend to justify their presence in the region, Rouhani said in a meeting of a group of officials and ambassadors of the Islamic sates to Iran with Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on the occasion of Mab'ath.
Rouhani emphasized the fact that they are angry that the terrorists they support were defeated in Eastern Ghouta.
Iran has always supported the oppressed people of the region and the world, he said, adding that the Syrian people have stood against foreigners' aggressions.
The Iranian president went on to say that Iran has responded generously to regional governments' demands on fighting terrorism and will support them.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Rouhani referred to economic conspiracies against the country, saying that enemies' anti-Iran plots have always been foiled by people's awareness and resistance.
He also appreciated the unity among all groups, bodies and media against recent conspiracies.
Today, the Iranian government is more prepared than ever in the field of economic, political, diplomacy and nuclear fields, and will foil any plot.
