Tehran (IP) - Iranian president said that what we have witnessed since last night in the United States shows how weak Western democracy is and that it has no strong foundation.

Iran Press/Iran news: Hassan Rouhani stressed: "Despite the progress of science and industry in these western countries, we have unfortunately witnessed that populism has many grounds."

Speaking during the inauguration of several national big projects and innovation factories in different parts of the country via videoconferencing on Thursday, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani stated: "We witnessed what a populist man did to his country in these 4 years, and questioned the reputation of the country, and what great blows this person has caused our region, Palestine, Syria and Yemen to experience."

Rouhani added: "When an unhealthy person takes power, he creates many problems for his country and the world, which I hope this will be a lesson for the whole world, as well as for the next rulers of the White House."

"Those who will take power in the White House in two weeks must make amends and return the American great nation to their true place. They should return to the basic conditions of the international community, namely reason and law," the president underscored.

Rouhani expressed hope that the evil of illiterate people in running the US and those who seek their family and personal interests will be reduced from their country and the world, and we will see better conditions in the region and the world.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani inaugurated three national projects and two innovation factories in Chaharmahal-Bakhtiari Province in the west of Iran, Razavi Khorasan Province in the northeast, Isfahan Province in the centre and Fars Province in the south of the country on Thursday.
