Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has commended the “very big achievements” made by regional nations in confrontation with terrorists, saying the US and Israeli regime are irked by these gains.
Speaking to reporters after a meeting of the heads of the three branches of the Iranian government on Saturday, Rouhani said the days of the terrorists in the Middle East region are numbered.
“Today, the people of Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, backed by their armies and friendly countries, particularly the Islamic Republic of Iran, have managed to almost entirely get rid of such a problem (terrorism),” the Iranian president said.
He added that certain powers also sought to partition countries in the region and redraw geographical borders, but failed to achieve their objectives.
“We are witnessing major achievements in the region, and the US, the Zionist regime (Israel) and their cronies are dismayed and enraged by these gains,” Rouhani pointed out.
He said the situation shows the plots against regional countries have been thwarted, urging people to remain vigilant against new conspiracies.
Rouhani noted that the three branches of the Iranian government would also adopt necessary strategies to boost regional stability and security.
