TEHRAN: Iranian President Hassan Rouhani explained Thursday that the chaos unleashed on the US Capitol by US counterpart Donald Trump‘s supporters uncovered the fragility of Western democracy.
“What we noticed in the United States yesterday (Wednesday) evening and right now exhibits over all how fragile and susceptible Western democracy is,” Rouhani explained in a speech broadcast by state television.
“We observed that sad to say the floor is fertile for populism, regardless of the improvements in science and industry.
“A populist has arrived and he has led his country to disaster above these earlier four yrs.
“I hope the complete earth and the upcoming occupants of the White Residence will study from it.”
Rouhani said he hoped for a improve of direction from the incoming administration of US President-elect Joe Biden.
He urged the new administration “to make up (for the previous) and restore the country to a situation worthy of the American country, simply because the American nation is a wonderful nation”.
“May possibly they return to purpose, legality and their obligations. It truly is for their individual reward and the excellent of the planet,” he explained.
Regardless of plan references to the United States as the “Excellent Satan” in official rhetoric, it is not the 1st time that an Iranian president has referred to as The us a “excellent country”.
Rouhani, a relative moderate in Iranian politics, presided over negotiations for a landmark 2015 nuclear settlement with major powers that Trump abandoned in 2018.
He has staked his reputation on a diplomatic opening to the incoming Biden administration to check out to rescue the offer.
