Victory of Iranian nation in recent months unmatched
Tehran, President Hassan Rouhani described the political victory of the Iranian nation in recent months as unmatched, and said that nobody believed that in three months the representatives of the Iranian nation be triumphant in three major legal scenes.
President Rouhani made the remarks in a vote of confidence session of Parliament for four proposed ministers on Saturday.
'We witnessed a decisive victory for the Iranian people against the conspiracies of the United States in recent weeks and months. It is rare that the United States has made a major decision against a big country while its traditional allies did not follow the suit,' President Rouhani said.
The Iranian president noted that if a year ago at such a meeting 'we would discuss that the United States might one day stand against Iran and that Europe would be on the side of Iran and against the United States, the overwhelming majority would not have believed it and they would have said that it was pure optimism. It was not possible that the US would make a decision on an important international issue while all countries in the world, with the exception of some, would support Iran and oppose the US'.
He stated that the political victory of the Iranian nation in recent months was a rare victory in history, not only in the Iranian history.
'Nobody believed that in few months the representatives of the Iranian people would win in three major legal scenes,' President Rouhani argued.
The Iranian president went on to say that Iran has been twice victorious against the United States in recent months in the Hague International Court ; it was the first time that Americans believed that this court does not have the jurisdiction. We believed that the court had jurisdiction and the court voted against the US and in favor of Iran.
Rouhani noted, For the second time, for provisional sentences against the United States, it was our opinion that these sentences should be issued and that America was opposed. Our lawyers and legal representatives of the Iranian nation won and several days ago at the UN General Assembly, the head of the court explicitly announced that the US has been sentenced.
He pointed out that the third time in the last few weeks, about $6 billion of Iranian property had been seized in Italy. In the Supreme Court, Iranian representatives have won victory over the United States, and the money has been unfreezed.
