After Tehran accused Washington of supporting terrorism and violence in the protests that have rocked Iran for more than a month and at the same time trying to reach an agreement for the relaunch of the nuclear pact of 2015, United States President Joe Biden, during an election event in California, responding to reporters said: “We will free Iran. They will be free very soon.” The spokesman for the American National Security Council, John Kirby, in a virtual press briefing, regarding the sentence of the American president specified: “Biden was expressing his solidarity with the Iranian people and emphasizing that the US is on the side of the peaceful demonstrators. It is up to the Iranian people to determine their future, nothing has changed from this point of view “.
Raisi: “Iran will not bow to the US”
The sentence, pronounced late in the night in the US and reported this morning by the pool of journalists following the American president, had aroused the angry reaction of Iranian president Ebrahim Raisi. “The great people of Iran will not bow their heads to you,” he said, addressing Biden. “The enemy today affects our solidarity and our national unity, our security, peace and determination, our men and women will never allow you to carry out your satanic wishes”, he thundered during the celebrations for the 43rd anniversary of the takeover of the US embassy in Tehran in 1979 by a group of students who held diplomatic personnel hostage for more than a year.
The Iranian president: “The US supports war and terrorism”
Amid the crowd shouting slogans such as “death to America”, “death to Britain” and “death to Israel”, President Raisi said that the United States supports war and terrorism to defend its interests and has launched an appeal to “fight against global arrogance”, a term used by the Iranian authorities to refer to the US and Israel.
