TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- Parliament speaker Gholam Ali Haddad Adel said here Saturday that the embassy takeover by Iran shattered the United States’ forged awe in the Middle-East and world.
Addressing a large congregation of university and school students marking the take-over of the US embassy in Tehran 27 years ago, Haddad Adel also regretted that the US has apparently failed to grasp lessons from the take-over of its embassy in Tehran on Nov 4, 1979 by a group of dedicated, revolutionary university students known as ‘Muslim Students Following the Line of Imam Khomeini’.
“After 27 years the US officials are unfortunately still unable to comprehend the intentions and objectives of our Islamic revolution, which could all be put into just these three words: Independence, Freedom and Islamic Republic,” he continued.
Elsewhere, the top legislative official pointed to Iran’s nuclear case and the US efforts to ratify a draft UN Security Council resolution against Iran, and said, “The US should know that sanctions and threats will have no effect on the Iranian nation’s will as the Iranian nation is ready to pay for its independence.”
He stressed that his country will show proper reaction to any kind of measure or move meant to deprive Iran of its inalienable right of access to peaceful civilian nuclear technology, saying that any such action equals targeting Iran’s national sovereignty.
Haddad Adel said the United States’ conditions are deteriorating, adding that the ongoing developments and state of affairs in Iraq, Palestine and Lebanon substantiate the very same fact.
He said the US has no way out but to revise its policies and treat other states wisely, realistically and with much respect, warning that in case Washington decides to go on with its present interventions and bullying behavior, it will be destined to witness aggravation of its global situation and growing world hatred for the United States.
