Elsewhere in his address, the Iranian president referred to the sanctions against Iran and said today, a group of 'demagogue' persons, who raise nonsense words and nobody accepts their logic, have started sanctioning to force a great nation and affect their lives. 

"Our path in the face of such Christian, Jewish and regional racists is clear," said the president, adding that today, a group of extremists are now in the region under the guise of Christians, Jews and Muslims, and have brought the forged Zionist regime to power through a racist ideology, and daily massacre of Palestinians and bombarding the oppressed Yemeni people.

"The question is how these have found themselves and how the cowboys have allied themselves with the camel riders?" Rouhani wondered.

He said the enemies of Iranian people want just one thing from Iranians and they do not mind the nuclear issue or the Iran nuclear deal, known as the JCPOA, rather they want to do whatever they wish in the region, expecting us to turn a blind eye to them. 

"They say, if we did injustice to Iraq and Afghanistan and turned Syrian and North Africa insecure, you should not pay heed and keep silent instead," he added.

"They want us not to be supportive of the oppressed in the face of the Takfiris who seek to dominate the region," he said. 203/103
