Iran doesn’t seem to be concerned about who wins the US presidential elections.
“It is by no means important for the Islamic Republic of Iran who will win the US presidential election because any government taking power in the US would have to surrender to the Iranian nation,” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said at a weekly cabinet session on Wednesday.
“Today, one can definitely conclude that the US’ actions against the Iranian nation have ended in failure,” Rouhani said.
He noted that the termination of the UN arms embargo on Iran has marked a victory for rationalism against force.
“It doesn’t matter what amounts of weapons we purchase or sell with the arms embargo lifted. What is important is that the logic of right and righteousness and the logic of law and rationalism defeated force and bullying and that the Iranian nation achieved its rights,” he said.
Rouhani also highlighted the failure of the US and Israel to convince the JCPOA parties to withdraw from the nuclear deal, saying the Islamic Republic behaved wisely and adopted a “very complicated and calculated policy” after President Donald Trump withdrew from the nuclear accord.
