President Rouhani indicated that “since we are approaching a point [in October] where all Iran’s arms embargo are being lifted based on resolution 2231, they [ie, the U.S.] are angry and upset about this important day in the history of Iran's defence and intend to prepare a resolution and take it to the Security Council. We expect the four permanent members of the Security Council to stand up to this conspiracy… Especially from our two friendly countries, Russia and China”. Rouhani further maintained that “the Americans need to know that no matter what they do, Iran's defence capabilities will be developed under all circumstances”.
