Hassan Rouhani: Hassan Rouhani is going to leave the post of President of Iran. In the recently held presidential election here, Ibrahim Raisi had won. Raisi will now take oath of office on Thursday.
Outgoing President Hassan Rouhani of Iran
Hassan Rouhani Says Government Not Always Truthful: Iran’s outgoing president admitted to his people on Sunday that the nation was “not told part of the truth” several times during his eight-year term. He is going to step down at a time when the nuclear deal signed during his time with the world’s powerful countries is in limbo and tensions with Western countries remain. President Hassan Rouhani’s remarks were broadcast on state television.
His government has faced criticism in recent months, from the coronavirus pandemic to drought in the country. Rouhani’s remarks come days after he criticized Iran’s biggest religious leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, over the failures in the nuclear agreements. Khamenei’s confidant elected President Ibrahim Raisi will take oath on Thursday.
Didn’t tell people some part of the truth
In his last cabinet meeting as president, Rouhani said, ‘What we told people was not contrary to reality, but we did not tell them some part of the truth (Outgoing President Hassan Rouhani,). Because I did not consider it useful and I was afraid that it would harm national unity. He did not elaborate on his statement. However, during his tenure, Iran’s paramilitary Revolutionary Guard accidentally shot down a commercial plane in January 2020, killing 176 people on board.
The government did not accept the mistake for many days
The government did not accept its mistake for several days and when the western countries made their suspicion public, the government accepted its mistake (Iran Ukraine Passenger Plane). Rouhani said he and his officers did a better job. “If we have made a mistake, we apologize to the people,” he said. He also referred to the 2015 nuclear deal with the world’s powerful countries, in which Iran agreed to limit uranium enrichment in order to lift economic sanctions. However, it has fallen into disrepair after then-President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew the US from the agreement in May 2018.
