President swears in at Islamic Consultative Assembly

People’s vote our greatest weapon

 

 

President Rouhani swore in at Islamic Consultative Assembly (Majlis) and pledged to devote himself to serving the people and country.

 

During the ceremony that was held on Saturday, Dr Rouhani also swore to promote religion and morality and support right and justice.

 


 

In the ceremony that is based on Article 121 of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Iran, President Hassan Rouhani read out the text of the oath and signed it in the presence of the heads of branches, members of the Guardian Council, and foreign guests.

 

President at swearing-in ceremony in Majlis:
People’s vote our greatest weapon/Iranian nation sacrificed a lot for freedom, rule of law, national sovereignty, their beliefs/World must know any violation of JCPOA to be responded by Iranian nation, government/Foreign powers intensified instability, chaos in region by selling billions of dollars of weapons

President Rouhani made a speech in his swearing-in ceremony at Islamic Consultative Assembly, saying: “Although my responsibility comes from vote of the majority, but today, I am the president of the Islamic Republic of Iran, responsible to safeguard all people’s rights”.

In the meeting that was held on Saturday, Dr Rouhani said: “Today, 8 June 2017, is the 111th anniversary of the day when a new Iran rose from among turmoil, creating a new point in history, giving way to Iran’s Constitutional Movement as the first national uprising in the Middle East”.

People’s vote was not an incident but the result of social maturity, said Rouhani adding: “Iranian nation sacrificed a lot for freedom, rule of law, national sovereignty, and their beliefs”.

Stressing that the world must know any violation of JCPOA will be responded by the Iranian nation and government, he said: “People’s vote is our greatest weapon”.

Stating that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is an example of national unity in Iran, Dr Rouhani said: “The Iranian nation will respond respect with respect and humiliation with appropriate response”.

He also went on to say: “The new administration’s policy will continue to be extensive, balanced interaction with the world”.

“The 12th Administration’s pivotal programme is based on freedom, security, peace and progress,” the President added.

“On behalf of the Iranian people and authorities, I explicitly announce that the Islamic Republic of Iran will not start violating the JCPOA but will not remain quiet against US continuing to wriggle out of its commitments either,” continued the President.

Stating that we want to turn the voice of moderation, logic, and dialogue into the prevailing voice in the region, he continued: “We have no business with novice politicians, but announce the older ones that the experience of JCPOA can be used as a model for relations and international law”.

“We are a peace-seeking administration in domestic and foreign policies; we prefer peace over war and reform over preservation,” President Hassan Rouhani continued.

“Today is not the era of the mother of bombs; let us unveil the mother of negotiations,” said Rouhani, adding: “We stretch our hand of friendship to our neighbouring countries”.

The President of the Islamic Republic of Iran also said: “Foreign powers intensified instability, chaos in region by selling billions of dollars of weapons”.

Production, youth employment administration’s main concern/I hope we witness absolute poverty completely eradicated at the end of 12th Administration

President Rouhani attended a joint press conference with the heads of the other two branches, Dr Ali Larijani and Ayatollah Amoli Larijani and said: “We must thank the Iranian nation for attending the presidential election”.

Appreciating the Supreme Leader for his endorsement, as well as supporting the 11th Administration during the past four years, the President added: “People’s votes paved the way for the 12th Administration’s work and today, I am happy to tell our great nation that we could fulfil most of our promises that we gave in the beginning of the 11th Administration”.

He added: “Before the 11th Administration, we were sanctioned by the Security Council and the United Nations but today, we are under no sanctions by the Security Council; of course, there are some sanctions and we must confront them”.

“Today, our relations with countries throughout the world are better and the groundwork is ready for growth and people’s economic activities,” Dr Rouhani continued.

The President also said: “During the past four years, we witnessed insurance for all, decrease in treatment costs and self-sufficiency in various sectors such as agriculture, oil and gas”.

In transportation and constructing roads in provinces around the country and also to neighbouring countries, we are in better conditions, said Rouhani adding: “We hope to be able to execute and operationalise the promises we made to people, especially those concerning living conditions and economic growth”.

Describing production and youth employment as the administration’s main concern, he said: “I hope we witness absolute poverty completely eradicated at the end of 12th Administration”.

Today, our region is suffering from instability and insecurity, continued the President, adding: “The 12th Administration will work with other countries to establish more stability in the region”.

Terrorists have suffered hard strikes and we are witnessing instability decreasing in the region, continue the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran expressing hope that in the coming four years we witness closer, stronger ties with our neighbours.
