“Our task is to protect the glory which was brought to us by Imam Khomeini from isolation and negligence; we must preserve the glorious Islam that Imam interpreted for the people in the best way, as well as the political Islam with the power of leadership which Imam Khomeini offered to us,” said Iranian President Hassan Rouhani while paying tribute to the late founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini on the first day of Iran's Government Week.

President Hassan Rouhani said that if in the name of Islam, put aside the republic and if we forget the name of Islam in the name of republicanism, we are not in the path of Late Imam Khomeini.

President said that being revolutionary from Imam’s viewpoint is confidence in the law, law enforcement, dedication to Islamic morality, self-esteem and respect for others.

President Rouhani said that extremist interpretations of Islamic Revolution of Iran are rejected.

He added that all revolutionaries should be bound to the rule of law.

Dr.Rouhani hailed the role of people in all victories during the past three decades, adding that the success of nuclear talks is the result of people and Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei's support.

“Imam showed respect towards people from all social status, but gave a special consideration to the poor, the youth and the women in society,” emphasized Rouhani.

He considered the main purpose of the Islamic Revolution to be the establishment of the Islamic government and added, “after the formation of the Islamic government, the revolution will continue its path within this framework and it would be incorrect to think that revolution is opposed to the government.”

Emphasizing that the country has achieved success due to the Leader’s guidance and nation’s support, the Iranian President continued, "Supporting the country means supporting the nation and all should work hands in hands for advancing country in the arenas of science, research and technology."

Dr.Rouhani further noted that science and technology help the country to make more progress in line with benefiting from other countries' experiences.

Stressing that all revolutionaries should be bound to the rule of law, Dr.Rouhani hailed the role of people in all victories during the past three decades and said the success of nuclear talks is the result of the support from the Iranian nation as well as the Leader Ayatollah Khamenei's blessing.

He further deemed the future of Iran brilliant, adding that the government will do its best to use the opportunity raised in the wake of the lift of sanctions to further develop the country.

Government plans to enhance Iran's position in the international scene, the president underlined.
