Iran to prevail over US pressures: Chinese professor

Tehran, Jan 26, IRNA- Iran will triumph over the US pressures, a Chinese Middle East expert said.

'Pressures from the West, especially the United States, are nothing new as we've seen them in the past too,' Hongda Fan, an associate professor at the School of Public Affairs at Xiamen University told the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA). 'However, Iran will prevail over the US pressures,' he added.

He praised Iran's 'big steps towards growth and development' as the country celebrates the 40th anniversary of the 1979 Revolution. 'Today, Iran will not allow the West to control it,' Hongda stressed.

Xianmen University's associate professor called the revolution 'a big phenomenon in the whole world', saying its effect are visible across the globe these days.

Hongda Fan, one of whose research areas is the Middle East, says Iran will not allow the 'foreigners' to infiltrate into the country because the Islamic Republic is pursuing development as well as independence.

He said Tehran has been 'successful' in devising educational plans, offering nation-wide healthcare system, providing higher education and subsidizing the low-earning classes despite all the difficulties and restored US sanctions.
