Addressing a large crowd of people during his visit to Gonbad-e Kavous in the northern Iranian Golestan Province on Monday, President Rouhani said: "We have no fear of the enemy plots and are sure to weather all problems.”
The president noted that Washington should bear in mind that it will “never be able to bring this great nation and its courageous leadership to its knees," Press TV reported
Rouhani gave assurances that all enemy schemes “to see us overpowered" by their ploys shall be frustrated.
"Are you planning on depriving our people of food, medicine, and equipment?" Rouhani exclaimed, noting, "We are standing in the face of the enemies with all our might."
The president added that it is tough, but possible, to surpass the US sanctions, which have targeted Iran’s banking, oil, and shipping sectors. "Our nation should know that these problems will not persist," he noted.
Rouhani hailed the level of relations between Iran and its neighbors which are "at their best," and even confirmed Tehran’s preparedness to resolve certain standing issues with "one or two" neighboring countries.
