President Rouhani: Islam, country, people main pillars in Iran

Tehran, Jan 31, IRNA – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday that everything in Iran should revolve around the three main principles of Islam, country and the people.

'As far as Islam is practiced, people adore the Islamic culture and Iran, and everybody reveres their national security, no force will be able to mislead them,' President Rouhani said after paying tribute to the late founder of the Islamic Revolution.

The Iranian president and his cabinet members attended the late Imam Khomeini's mausoleum on Wednesday to pay homage to the founder of the Islamic Revolution and the martyrs.

President Rouhani and his entourage on Wednesday also visited the tombs of the martyrs of the Eight-year Holy Defense (Iraqi-imposed war from 1980 to 1988) and the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

The day of Imam Khomeini's return to Iran from exile (Feb 1, 1979) marks the beginning of the Ten-Day Dawn in ceremonies which culminate with the anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution on February 11, 1979.

Iranians toppled the US-backed Pahlavi regime 39 years ago, ending 2,500 years of monarchy in the country.
