Rattling Iran's security is as futile as your sanctions: Raisi to West
During his speech in Pakdasht, southeast of Tehran, Raisi said that the West could not isolate Iran and in turn isolated themselves.
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi confirmed on Thursday that the attempts to rattle the country's security and stability will be futile just as the imposition of sanctions.
During his speech in Pakdasht, south of Tehran, Raisi said that the West could not isolate Iran and in fact isolated themselves, adding that they also failed to impede the country's development through their maximum pressure campaign, a fact that the West acknowledged.
Raisi reiterated that the government is "of the people, with the people and for the people" and further emphasized the will of the government, despite enemy efforts, to solve the people's economic and social crises such as housing and unemployment.
Two days earlier, Raisi noted that the US and other enemies’ failed attempts to foment insecurity in Iran are similar to the conspiracies these enemies carried out against both Libya and Syria.
Iran's Intelligence Minister Esmail Khatib said on Tuesday that it became clear in the recent events in Iran that "Israel" was responsible for implementation, UK media for sponsoring, and Saudi Arabia for financial support of Iran's riots for the past months.
