President Rouhani remarked that "today, the enemies are working hard, sending their fleet in the morning, and giving [a] phone number in the evening. Of course, we have many phone numbers of them; any date at which they have carried out a crime against the Iranian nation is their real phone number". Rouhani went on to posit that "the argument between us is because of tyranny and aggression towards the people and the Iranian nation. Repent and get back on the right track, the door is open, may the people of Iran forgive your historical tyranny and crimes".
