TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – The Iranian nation’s support for the Islamic Republic has remarkably immunized the country against threats and foreign pressure, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said.

“As an Iranian citizen, I am proud that the Islamic Republic has gained remarkable immunity to threats, sanctions and foreign pressure with the presence of our country’s people,” Zarif said at a conference on geopolitical crises in the Islamic world, held in Tehran on Monday.

He also highlighted the significance of “unity” as a geopolitical strategy vis-à-vis division, stressing that moderation should be employed to fight off extremism and rift.

The top Iranian diplomat further praised the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement as a factor contributing to regional security.

The ongoing conference in Tehran is being attended by experts and Muslim clerics from Iran and a number of other countries, including Lebanon, Iraq and France.
