Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says that the United States’ hostile attitude toward Iran since the victory of its Islamic Revolution 40 years ago, and the era of US domination over the Islamic Republic has come to an end.
Rouhani made the remarks in an address to the closing ceremony of the 36th Book of the Year Award and the 26th World Book Award of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Tehran on Tuesday.
He said Europe, the US and some reactionary Arab countries in the region imposed an all-out blockade against Iran but failed to achieve any success due to the Iranian nation’s faith, belief and hope.
The president said the US prevented four “scientists” from traveling to Tehran to receive their book awards and threatened that it would not give them visas to turn back to the United States, in a move that showed they are under sanctions.
“Who are you fighting with? You are fighting with the ideologies and civilization of the world. You are fighting with nations in our region,” Rouhani said.
