Rouhani says Iran not succumbing to U.S.

PanARMENIAN.Net - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Monday, November 19 that the Islamic Republic "will keep independent and won't succumb to the United States or any other power," IRNA reports.

"I thank the people of Iran for having resisted against the enemies that tried to make us regret our Islam, independence, and democracy," said Rouhani in Khoy, northwestern Iran.

The Iranian president said, "They wanted to turn November 4 into Iran's sad day, but the Iranians resisted against them."
