In his message, the King voiced his “warm congratulations and sincere wishes for health and happiness to Rouhani. The King has also offered his best wishes and“further progress and prosperity to the brotherly Iranian people.”
King Mohammed VI has also expressed his willingness to “work hand-in-hand” with the Iranian leader to give a new impetus to the existing bilateral ties and relations of cooperation between Morocco and Iran to the best interests of the “two brother peoples.”
Thousands of Iranians flocked to the streets on Sunday, February 11 to mark the 39th anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution just weeks after protests rocked cities across Iran.
The protests in Iran cried out many anti-US slogans after President Donald Trump refused to re-certify the nuclear deal with world powers. Some protesters burned the Israeli and US flags, as well as a sheet reading “BARJAM,” the Farsi acronym for the 2015 nuclear agreement that Iran signed with world powers.
Underscoring the importance of anti-US demonstrations, Rouhani said that “this passionate and magnificent presence is a response to the new conspiracies of the United States against the Iranian nation and the actions of the Zionists in the region.”
The Iranian leader described the marches as the “announcement of unity and integrity of the Iranian nation and their pledge to the late Imam Khomeini to continue the path and causes of the Islamic Revolution.”
