TEHRAN (HRNW) Iran has once again criticized the United States. President Hassan Rouhani said that the United States finds it “unbearable” that the Islamic Revolution remains in place 41 years after bringing down US ally the shah. Rouhani told a rally in Tehran marking the anniversary of the ouster of the shah and establishment of the Islamic republic in 1979.
“It is natural for them to have dreamt, for 41 years, of returning to this land, because they know that we are one of the most powerful countries” in the Middle East, he added.
Rouhani was speaking at a rally in Tehran’s Azadi Square marking the anniversary, at a time of heightened tensions with the United States.
