"Islamic revolution was the victory of rationality, science, pen, and people's firm commitment to Imam Khomeini," said the President.

He added: "Islam brought republicanism and national sovereignty and the result of bolstering republicanism is promoting Islamic culture".

Stating that writers are the origin of thinking, he added: "Books are the reflector of the artists and writers' thinking".

He continued: "The miracles of the Prophet of Islam are the book, Quran, reading and reciting that prevailed over ignorance and the idols".

Dr Rouhani also went on to say: "The works of Hafiz, Saadi and Mowlana are the symbol of the Iranians' lasting writings for the world".

New words and theories give the society enthusiasm and energy, said Rouhani, adding: "Politics means safeguarding security and national interests".

"The meaning of Islam has not been, and is not, rejecting other ideas and religions," the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran continued, saying: "Islam is the most complete religion for guiding people".

He added: "Religion will confront any policy that threatens religious and national identity".

Dr Rouhani continued: "Without a doubt, the main factor of our victory in the nuclear issue is people's votes in the June, 2013 election and their big gathering at the ballot box because of the Supreme Leader's words".

"Some believe that we should not discuss and negotiate with world powers because they believe that they will trick us, but we heeded the political decree by the Supreme Leader and could continue the negotiations and reach an agreement that the new President of the United States cannot stand it and calls it the worst agreement in the history of the U.S," he said.

He continued: "Of course, the nuclear agreement yielded a win-win result and it is to the interest of all and the region".

"Kazakhstan and Astana negotiations being held proves that the nuclear agreement can be a model for carrying out tens of negotiations for security and stability of the region," Rouhani added.
