Iranian President Sheikh Hasan Rouhani said that the Iranian people should be spoken to with respect and dignity, warning all those who speak to Iranian with language of threats will regret it.
Rouhani hailed Iranians for turning out in millions on Friday to celebrate the anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, saying the rallies are a response to recent threats by new US rulers against Iran.
“This turnout is a response to false remarks of the new White House rulers and the people are telling the world through their presence that the Iranian people must be spoken to with respect and dignity,” Rouhani told the rally in Tehran.
“The Iranian nation has shown during the past 38 years that it will make anyone who speaks to Iranians with the language of threats regret it,” the Iranian president added.
Rouhani’s remarks came after US President Donald Trump said he had put Iran “on notice” in reaction to a Jan. 29 missile test and imposed fresh sanctions on individuals and entities.
Millions of Iranians took part in nationwide rallies on Friday to mark the 38th victory anniversary of the country’s Islamic Revolution.
A number of top officials joined demonstrators in Tehran to commemorate the occasion which is being covered by up to 6,000, including 250 foreign, reporters, photojournalists and camerapersons.
In his address on Friday, Rouhani said that the main challenge of the Islamic Revolution is now to materialize complete republicanism and Islamism.
“Our challenge is to maintain progress, spirituality, freedom and national sovereignty. In short, our challenge is to materialize complete republicanism and Islamism,” the Iranian President told crowds.
