President Rouhani: Gov't determined to enforce détente policy

Tehran, July 16, IRNA – President Hassan Rouhani underlined that his government is determined to implement détente policy in the Middle East.

'The will of the 11th government is peace and removal of tension in the region and it believes that this objective will be materialized by having powerful armed forces,' President Rouhani said, addressing a group of senior commanders of the Iranian Armed Forces.

'If we won't have strong Armed Forces, the peace will not have meaning and it is abjection. Dignity is tantamount to having prepared, altruist and united people as well as powerful Armed Forces and it is only then that we can talk powerfully with the other side,' he added.

President Rouhani said that supporting the Armed Forces is a duty of the government, and noted, 'The government will make use of all its capabilities and capacities to strengthen the Armed Forces and it wants the armed forces to help the government in resolving the people's problems.
