President Hassan Rouhani addressed the bumper crowd of people in Sirjan, Kerman province on Thursday and described Kermani people as very brave, revolutionary and devoted, adding: “More than 100 trillion rials of projects will be opened in this visit, which is very remarkable in history of our provinces”.

 “These days reminds us of the bravery of the courageous people of our land. In such days, the Iranian nation founded their desired ruling system based on Islam and people’s votes, named the Islamic Republic of Iran,” continued Rouhani.

He added: “The Iranian people led a revolution to victory, when they were alone and no foreign power was supporting them, but on the other hand, they stood against a regime armed to teeth, whom all superpowers were supporting”.

Stating that the Iranian nation toppled a dictatorship with empty hands and only with their self-sacrifice, he said: “It is an honour for us that in this revolution, we achieved democracy by self-sacrifice and paying attention to Islamic culture and identity”.

“It is you people who make our great Iran’s progress happen through standing by the government. We cannot follow the path of progress and prosperity without people’s support, vote and opinion or even criticism”.

The President also said: “People are vigilant and awake when a group tries to infiltrate into the country and create insecurity”.

Stressing that “don’t anyone in Washington think that they can decide for the great Iranian nation”, he said: “The Iranian nation has seen your crimes throughout the history. People have not forgotten SAVAK and their tortures, which was founded by you. People have not forgotten your aggression towards the region; you invaded Afghanistan and Iraq and help ISIL and it is you who does not want security in the region”.

“Today, you in Washington think about the Iranian people and sympathize with them? If you are honest, give back people’s assets that you plundered. You kept the Iranian people under sanctions for years; were your sanctions for or against the people? You even imposed sanctions on medicine and plundered people’s assets, how can you say you are sympathetic towards the Iranian nation?”

Dr Rouhani said: “Can you, who have stood against our Muslim people and call them terrorists, claim to have been supporting the Iranian nation?”

Referring to the time that the Saddam regime invaded Iran, the President said: “The day Baathist invaders attacked out country and savagely used chemical weapons against out innocent people, none of you were thinking about the Iranian nation and it was the Iranian nation itself who drove the aggressors out of the country with devotion and sacrifice”.

“Today as well, the Iranian nation is readier more than ever to defend the independence, national sovereignty, security and progress and stand against enemies,” Dr Rouhani added.

The President of the Islamic Republic of Iran also went on to say: “Today, I have come to Kerman and Sirjan to open more than 10o trillion rials worth of projects in this province and this is very remarkable in the history of the provinces”.

Stating that last year, 46,000 new jobs were created for the people of Kerman, he said: “Kerman province, because of the linking point of Oman Sea and the Persian Gulf, is a very important and strategic province in Iran”.
