The Iranian president made the remarks on Tuesday in an address to a ceremony to inaugurate a new terminal at the Imam Khomeini International Airport south of Tehran.
“We will not wage war with any nation, those facing us are a group of politicians with little experience,” Rouhani said.
Rouhani noted that ill-wishers have launched a “war of hope and wills” against the Iranian nation, and the enemies are attempting to create despair among the Iranian nation through malicious schemes.
However, he added, Iranians are determined to defeat such plots and keep their hope alive, and “will be the ultimate winner of this war and pressure.”
Rouhani said that “despite all of the Americans’ attempts in the region and their intention to cut off our ties with the entire world and their desire to isolate Iran, they have been unsuccessful.”
He went on to say that the world community praises Iran’s stance in its face-off with America.
“Iran has been loyal to its signature, Iran has been loyal to international agreements, and the one standing against us today is the one that has trampled all pacts, agreements and international accords,” he added, referring to the US’s withdrawal from a 2015 multilateral nuclear deal with Tehran.
