“This year, two scenes made history: one was on January the 6th when the US congress was attacked by the people and, two, when the people of Afghanistan were dropped down from the US planes in August. From the Capitol to Kabul, one clear message was sent to the world: the US’ hegemonic system has no credibility, whether inside or outside the country.”
4. SOUNDBITE (Farsi) Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi, President, Islamic Republic of Iran:
“Today, the US does not get to exit Iraq and Afghanistan but is expelled. And, at the same time, it is the oppressed people, from Palestine and Syria to Yemen and Afghanistan, as well as the US taxpayers, who have to pay for this lack of rationality.”

8. SOUNDBITE (Farsi) Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi, President, Islamic Republic of Iran:
“Despite the fact that the Islamic Republic of Iran was keen from the outset to purchase and import COVID-19 vaccines from reliable international sources, it faced inhumane medical sanctions. Therefore, from the very beginning, we started to sustainably produce vaccines domestically.”

“If not for the power and role of Iran alongside the governments and peoples of Syria and Iraq as well as all the selfless efforts of Martyrs Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and General Qassem Soleymani, today ISIS would be the Mediterranean neighbors of Europe. And, of course, ISIS will not be the last wave of extremism.”

12. SOUNDBITE (Farsi) Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi, President, Islamic Republic of Iran:
“The military presence of the US in Syria and Iraq is the biggest hindrance to the establishment of democracy and will of nations. Freedom does not fit in the backpacks of soldiers coming from outside the region.”

14. SOUNDBITE (Farsi) Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi, President, Islamic Republic of Iran:
“However, the policy of “maximum oppression” is still on. We want nothing more than what is rightfully ours. We demand the implementation of international rules. All parties must stay true to the nuclear deal and the UN Resolution in practice.”

16. SOUNDBITE (Farsi) Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi, President, Islamic Republic of Iran:
“Nuclear weapons have no place in our defense doctrine and deterrence policy. The Islamic Republic considers the useful talks whose ultimate outcome is the lifting of all oppressive sanctions. While decisively defending all is rights and the interests of its people, Iran is keen to have large-scale political and economic cooperation and convergence with the rest of the world.”

STORYLINE:

Iranian President Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi condemned the “continued illegal US sanctions” levied against his country and demanded that “this organized crime against humanity be recorded as a symbol and reality of the so-called American human rights.”

In a pre-recorded message presented today (21 Sep) to the General Assembly’s General Debate, Raisi said Justice and freedom could only be achieved when the rights of all nations are fulfilled, adding that any violation of the rights of nations would endanger global peace and security.

He said, “This year, two scenes made history: one was on January the 6th when the US congress was attacked by the people and, two, when the people of Afghanistan were dropped down from the US planes in August. From the Capitol to Kabul, one clear message was sent to the world: the US’ hegemonic system has no credibility, whether inside or outside the country.”

The Iranian President said the result of seeking hegemony has been blood-spilling and instability and, ultimately, defeat and escape. He added, “Today, the US does not get to exit Iraq and Afghanistan but is expelled. And, at the same time, it is the oppressed people, from Palestine and Syria to Yemen and Afghanistan, as well as the US taxpayers, who have to pay for this lack of rationality.”

Raisi said the world does not care about ‘America First’ or ‘America is Back.’ He said if rationality prevailed in the minds of the decision-makers, they must realize that nations’ perseverance is stronger than the power of the superpowers. He said sanctions are the United States’ new way of war with nations. He stressed that sanctions, especially sanctions on medicine at the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, are “crimes against humanity.”

SOUNDBITE (Farsi) Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi, President, Islamic Republic of Iran:
“Moreover, I, on behalf of the Iranian nation and millions of refugees hosted by my country, would like to condemn the continued illegal US sanctions especially in the area of humanitarian items, and demand that this organized crime against humanity be recorded as a symbol and reality of the so-called American human rights.”

Raisi said, despite Iran’s keenness from the outset to purchase and import COVID-19 vaccines from reliable international sources, “it faced inhumane medical sanctions” and therefore started to “sustainably produce vaccines domestically.”

He said cooperation among countries in the area of health and especially on vaccines is tantamount, adding that the COVID-19 pandemic was a wake-up call for the whole world and a reminder that the security of all human beings is interdependent.

Raisi said the security-making model of Iran is based on forming intra-regional mechanisms through diplomacy that is pivoted on and free from outside interferences. He said his country’s policy has been to strive for the preservation of stability and territorial integrity of all the countries of the region. He added, “If not for the power and role of Iran alongside the governments and peoples of Syria and Iraq as well as all the selfless efforts of Martyrs Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and General Qassem Soleymani, today ISIS would be the Mediterranean neighbors of Europe. And, of course, ISIS will not be the last wave of extremism.”

The Iranian President said the US military presence in Syria and Iraq is “the biggest hindrance to the establishment of democracy and will of nations.” He stressed that freedom “does not fit in the backpacks of soldiers coming from outside the region.”

Raisi said the project of countering the Iranian people, which manifested itself in the form of violating the JCPOA and was followed by the ‘maximum pressure’ campaign and the withdrawal from an internationally recognized agreement, has totally failed. However, he said, “the policy of ‘maximum oppression’ is still on. We want nothing more than what is rightfully ours. We demand the implementation of international rules. All parties must stay true to the nuclear deal and the UN Resolution in practice.”

The Iranian President said nuclear weapons “have no place in our defense doctrine and deterrence policy,” adding that the "Islamic Republic considers useful the talks whose ultimate outcome is the lifting of all oppressive sanctions.” He said, “While decisively defending all is rights and the interests of its people, Iran is keen to have large-scale political and economic cooperation and convergence with the rest of the world.”
