He continued: "Some thought that relations between the three branches would be weak and loose but these relations have become better and closer during the 11th Administration's term of office".

Stressing that this unity and close ties between the government and the armed forces have made the enemies angry, he said: "Americans were working very hard to destroy the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), fight against people and impose sanctions but the whole world stood against them and they failed in their first step".

Dr Rouhani added: "We did not trust the United States in JCPOA. We discussed the JCPOA word by word and line by line, we talked round the clock for 30 months, if we trusted them it would be solved in 3 days".

"It is natural and obvious that one side of the agreement, which are the world powers, especially the USA which is hostile towards us, to have ups and downs. Anyway, the United States suffered a major defeat against its allies and even Europe. Only one or two countries and a hateful usurper regime supported the United States, and the whole world stood against them," he added.

The President of the Islamic Republic of Iran also went on to say: "Next issue is the victory that we achieved in promoting stability and security in the region and fighting terrorism. No one has a doubt that Iran has had an important role in combatting terrorism in the region".

The president noted: "This year our economic growth in the first six months was 6 per cent. All countries have had an average economic growth of 2 to 3 per cent. Our economic growth is better than the world's mean, and we have progressed".

He also referred to air pollution and said: "This air pollution problem cannot be completely eradicated in 2 days or a year or 5 years, but it needs planning".

The president remarked: "These achievements have made our enemies angry. Our unity was very hard to believe for them, our progress was unbearable for them, our success in the politics of the world, and against the United States and the Zionist regime was intolerable for them."

He continued: "The Iranian nation will easily confront these problems. Our people will put an end to a small group who chant slogans against people's will and against the law, insulting the values of the revolution and damaging public properties".

"The enemy will not remain silent in the face of the progress and greatness of the Iranian nation. Of course, there are a number of people among the protesters who are deceived who have right demands," the President said.

Dr Rouhani also went on to say: "We had to solve people's problem one way or another because they had no choice, so we paid the money of more than three million people who were involved with a fair interest, even this fair interest has been given to them".

The president pointed out that with regard to employment, there is a long way to solve the problem of unemployment, adding: "People have problems; this is natural and we have to solve these problems. So there are some who have objections or criticisms. Their criticism is right; however, they must choose the right path to express criticism. Some have entered here, who are abusing the situation by provoking others".

National unity is the first response to the enemies, said Rouhani adding: "Unity among authorities is the first step to solve problems".
