Rouhani: US and European forces are not safe in the region


Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has stated that “US and European forces are not safe in the region”.

According to Iranian state television, speaking at a cabinet meeting in Tehran, Rouhani said, “We do not want a security problem in the region. Wisely leave this region without fighting. Today, US soldiers are not safe. Tomorrow. European soldiers may not be safe either. Come back to the nuclear deal.”

Rouhani said the US withdrawal from the nuclear deal had a negative impact on the region’s security. “The security problem in the region will adversely affect the security of the US, Europe and the world,” he said.

– Ukrainian plane crash

The Iranian president has called on Iranian military officials to “honestly” share with the public the truths about the crash of the Ukrainian plane.

“The people expect honest and loyal behavior from the leaders. I invite the General Staff and the military forces to share with the people the details of the event from beginning to end. We apologize to the people,” Rouhani said.

He stressed that everyone was shocked by the crash of the passenger plane. “I have been the person responsible for the defense system for 7 years in the Iran-Iraq war. Such an event has not been observed in either the war or Iran’s history,” he added.
