Kurdistan people always rejected US-led intervention in Iran: Raisi
The Iranian President says enemies sought to undermine Iran's security because they are angered by the nation's progress.
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said on Thursday that the people of Kurdistan province have always rejected the United States-led foreign intervention in Iran's internal affairs.
Speaking at a gathering in the capital of Kurdistan Province, Sanandaj, Raisi underlined that "Americans should know that they do not have any place in the hearts of the people and nor will they have in the future because the culture of sacrifice and resistance has been institutionalized among Iranians."
The Iranian President tackled the recent foreign-backed riots in some parts of Iran, pointing out that enemies sought to undermine the country's security because they were angered by the Iranian nation's progress despite all the pressure they have exerted.
Raisi made clear that "this nation will not stop going ahead and these riots are meant to stop the fast pace of the train of the country's progress."
He indicated that enemies were angered by the "scientific advances, and the advances in defense, nuclear industries and our relationship with neighboring countries and different parts of the world, and the progress in oil and non-oil exports and the recovery of the country's economy."
Raisi arrived at Sanandaj on Thursday morning and headed straight to the city's water treatment plant to inaugurate a huge water supply project.
It is noteworthy that in late November, Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi, the spokesperson of the Iranian Armed Forces, pointed out that traces of the United States can be seen in all anti-Iran conspiracies.
Shekarchi said from the beginning of the victory of the Islamic Revolution, the whole world lined up against Iranians and the enemies implemented all kinds of conspiracies.
According to the Brigadier General, Iran has reached self-sufficiency in the fields of science and defense thanks to the sacrifices of the martyrs, adding that the enemies are afraid of the country's strength.
