Over 100 countries attending Pres. Rouhani's oath-taking token of Iranophobia failure

Tehran, Aug 7, IRNA – Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi said on Monday that presence of more than 100 countries in the oath-taking ceremony of the Iranian president is a clear sign of the failure of Iranophobia policy.

He added that the huge number of attendees was unique or rare after the Islamic Revolution and shows a new global approach toward Iran.

The large attendance shows Iranophilia rather than Iranophobia, Qasemi said.

He added that so far President Rouhani has had 27 meetings, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif 27 meetings, and Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani 30 meetings with foreign delegates.
