Iran will punish any country that will harm it’s national interest say Iran President Hassan Rouhani

According to a report published in Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said that Iran is not in the super power race in the region but Iran would punish any country trying to harm Iran’s national interests. He did not mention any country.

“If any country seeks to deal a blow to our national interests, we will respond. However, we hope it doesn’t get there,” he said in an interview with the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) on Tuesday night.

In a subtle warning to Saudi Arabia Rouhani further said “If needed, we will respond decisively to certain behaviors of some countries. If necessary, we will give a punishing response to the opposite side,”

“We are looking to a region which is proud and powerful. We would like all regional countries, especially our neighbors and the regional Muslims, to live together in peace and work toward development and prosperity.”

“Our aim is to help the regional countries get rid of their problems in the face of terrorists. We regard combating terrorists as one the prerequisites of stability in the region,” Rouhani said.

“Unfortunately, certain countries, whether knowingly or unknowingly, are helping terrorism. We want territorial integrity of all the regional countries to be protected and no disintegration to take place.”
