Recent US developments show how a populist can tarnish the image of his country/ I hope that next White House rulers return their country to the position of wisdom, law and commitment that the great nation of America should have/ Producing 2 key vaccines and saving 200m Euros an honor for country
The President called the recent developments in the United States a sign of the weakness and baselessness of the Western democracy and stressed, "These developments showed that despite the progress of science and technology in these countries, how much populism has ground and how a populist can tarnish the reputation of his country in 4 years".
Speaking on Thursday at the inauguration of 5 national projects of knowledge-based and innovation factories of the Ministry of Agriculture Jihad and the Vice Presidency for Science and Technology, Dr Hassan Rouhani said, "You see that an unhealthy person comes and takes power, affecting US relations with the world and undermining the relations of the United States with the entire world and inflicting a lot of damage on our region and Palestine, Syria, Yemen and all regions in the world".
"I hope this is a lesson for the whole world and for the next rulers of the White House, who will take power in two weeks to come and make amends and return their country to the position that the great nation of America should have," he said, adding, "This position is reason, law and commitment, and returning to this position is to the benefit of themselves and the world".
Dr Rouhani said, "We hope that we can see less of such illiterate people who seek the interests of their own family and personal interests in running a country both in that country and the world, and God willing, we will see a better situation in the region and the world".
"These show how important it is to be moral and moderate and to care about the people," the president said.
He continued, "I want to once again commemorate our dear Martyr Soleimani. I never saw him think of a faction or a party, he always thought of the people, Muslims and the region, and he did a great service to the whole region and the people".
Dr Rouhani stated, "We may grow within a faction and party, even by relying on a faction to succeed and gain power, but at the same time our duty is to serve the whole nation and all people with any taste, idea and ethnicity".
The President also went on to say, "After faith as the highest power and cultural power, perhaps no power is higher than scientific and technological power".
He continued, "The late Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani worked hard for the development and construction of the country and did great things in the revolution, the Holy Defense, the Construction Era and in the cultural field, of which the Islamic Azad University is an example".
"It is very important for us to pay tribute to Amir Kabir and Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani, who were models of sacrifice and service, patience and hard work," said Rouhani.
Regarding the Ukrainian plane crash, the President said, "God willing, our court will look into this case in a thorough and glorious trial, and the final result of this court can be a real comfort to the families, as well as compensating for the damage caused to the Islamic Republic of Iran's aviation".
He continued, "Both food and economic security and the currency that is used in the field of vaccine development are very important for us. Producing two important vaccines and saving 200 million Euros is an honor for our country".
