TEHRAN, Sep. 23 (Press Shia Agency) – Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi, the Head of Iran’s Expediency Council, criticized Trump’s address at UNGA and hailed Pres. Rouhani’s decisive response.
“Unfortunately, the new US president has so far staged a contradictory and imbalanced personality,” said Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi, the newly appointed Head of Iran’s Expediency Council in the first meeting of the council under his chairmanship.
“While Mr. Trump criticized his rival, during the presidential race, for creating the ISIL as an illegal wrong act, in an explicit contradiction and lie, during his recent speech, accused Iran of terrorism,” asserted the Iranian senior official. “It is while the Islamic Republic of Iran has been a victim of terrorism since the victory of the Islamic Revolution.”
“The Islamic Republic of Iran has always been fighting this sinister phenomenon in the region and now is the head front of war on Takfirist terrorists of ISIL in the region to eradicate this tree of devilry,” highlighted the grand cleric.
Offering thanks to President Rouhani for his UNGA address, Ayatollah Shahroudi said, “These remarks against the unworthy remarks of US president were brave, decisive, and very appropriate.”
