Rouhani: Iranians rightly believe defense power is nonnegotiable

President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday criticized “purposeful commotion” created over Iran’s missile program by certain countries, saying the Iranian nation’s mind is fresh with the “bitter” memories of Saddam Hussein’s missile attacks on Iranian cities in the 1980s and they believe that Iran’s defense capability must not be open to negotiation. In a meeting with the Dutch Foreign Minister Sigrid Kaag, Rouhani said while Saddam was targeting Iranian civilian targets with missiles other countries refused to sell missiles to Iran to defend its people.
