Iranian President Hassan Rouhani claimed that the US is looking for «division» in Iran as he addressed a crowd in Yazd on Sunday.
In his speech he praised the people of Yazd for their role in the Iranian Revolution, and warned against alleged attempts to divide the nation. «These voices heard by some youth are not the voices of you people. You are a great and kind people who are from the... Еще revolution. Division is what the US is looking for. Do not let the US’ demand come out from a few people’s larynxes,» he said.
«Although these are just an insignificant group of people in the country, we invite this small group to Islam as well,» he added.
The speech comes as Rouhani announced that 53 billion barrels of crude oil have been discovered in the south-western province of Khuzestan.
