The speaker of Iran's parliament (Majlis) Ali Larijani says the Islamic Republic has proven to the world that the weapon of force and bullying is no longer effective.
Larijani made the remarks in his address to the Fourth World Conference of Parliament Speakers, convened by the Geneva-based Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) in cooperation with the United Nations, at the UN headquarters in New York on Monday.
Some big powers tried to bring the Iranian nation to its knees, but the great Iranian nation stood against force by choosing the course of resistance and steadfastness and emerged victorious, he said.
By so doing, the Iranian nation showed that the weapon of force and bullying is old and ineffective and has lost its effectiveness and power of influence, the official noted.
Larijani was referring to Iran’s recent agreement with the P5+1, the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany, which ended a 12-year Western standoff with Iran over the country's nuclear program...What he's really saying is that an Obama-helmed America has lost its effectiveness and power of influence. And you know something? He's right.
