Orumiyeh, Nov 19, IRNA – We will keep independent and won't succumb to the US or any other power, said Iran President Hassan Rouhani on Monday.

'I thank the people of Iran to have resisted against the enemies that tried to make us regret our Islam, independence, and democracy,' said President Rouhani in Khoy, Western Azarbaijan Province, northwestern Iran.

The president said, 'They wanted to turn November 4 into Iran's sad day, but the Iranians resisted against them.'
