Rouhani: Iran's missiles for defensive purposes

"Today, the Zionists' overt and covert intervention can be seen in nearly every dispute among countries of the region", the Iranian president said.

Rpouhani and Dehghan speak ahead of al-Quds Day, an annual holiday Iran says is created to show support for the Palestinians and emphasize the importance of Jerusalem for Muslims. Terrorists are provided with arms and tasked with bombing the region to serve Israel's interests. "Today, roots of troubles, violence and insecurities in the Muslim world, as well as the whole world, can be traced in the fake and brutal Zionist regime and the United States as its main sponsor". "If we want to curb Zionism in the region, we should forge unity in the Islamic world and settle differences".

The president also commented on the Revolutionary Guards Corps' recent missile attack on the "Islamic State" (IS, ISIS, ISIL, Daesh) in Syria and said, "If the masters of terrorism have made a decision to extend terrorism into the holy land of Iran, they should know that the Islamic Republic will not let them do that".

"We have announced from the beginning that our missiles are defensive missiles and we will not ask for anybody's permission for our defensive power", President Rouhani continued.

The president also underscored that Iran will not allow the masters of terrorism to take terrorist activities inside its borders. "Acting against terrorist headquarters has been decided in the Supreme National Security Council and we have given our armed forces even more authority for countermeasure".

"Today, the Zionists' overt and covert intervention can be seen in nearly every dispute among countries of the region", he continued.

The president also pointed to an anti-Iran sanctions bill passed by the U.S. senate last week, saying the new officials in Washington have made wrong calculations if they think they could pressure Iran with congressional measures.

"Preceding US administrations have had all these experiences and it has been 40 years that the US has hatched various plots against Iran".
