Rouhani says all regional countries can think of a ‘great union’ for economy, energy relying on Iran’s power
Iran’s president stated that Iran demands peace and security in the region, stressing "all regional countries can think of a great union for economy, energy and tourism by relying on the power and peacefulness of Iranian nation," APA reported citing ISNA.
Speaking on Wednesday in Bandar Abbas' Takhti Stadium, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said, "We have been –and will be- a good neighbor for the countries of the Persian Gulf littoral".
Mentioning that enemies are only worried about their own interests, buying cheap oil and selling expensive weapons, he added, "Iran is a security-building element in the region and the world and we don't need foreigners for establishing security in the region, but we are ready to discuss security with our neighbors and friends".
He also added, "In addition to Iran, the people of this strait have the right to provide security and energy on the highway of the world economy".
"You have always guarded the Persian Gulf, the Oman Sea and the Strait of Hormuz," said the president addressing the people of Hormozgan province.
Dr Rouhani said, "The United States has repeatedly sought to undermine the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and work against the Iranian nation, but it was left in global isolation".
The Iranian president also said, "We appreciated the stances of Russia and other countries in the United Nations, and we denounce the United States and Britain for plotting against the Iranian people".
