Commenting on the expiry of UN arms restrictions against Iran, President Rouhani asserted that “it doesn’t matter what amounts of weapons we purchase or sell with the arms embargo lifted. What is important is that the logic of right and righteousness and the logic of law and rationalism defeated force and bullying, and that the Iranian nation achieved its rights”. Rouhani also insisted that “it is by no means important for the Islamic Republic of Iran who will win the U.S. presidential election, because any government taking power in the U.S. would have to surrender to the Iranian nation”.
