Iran: Rouhani Says Iran Will 'Overcome' Coronavirus in Nowruz Address

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani praised the efforts of Iranians in the fight against the novel coronavirus during a televised address for Nowruz, the Persian New Year, in Tehran on Friday.

“We will overcome the physical side of coronavirus with unity, effort, cooperation, and doctors’ efforts,” Rouhani said. “We have to strive to overcome the mental side of coronavirus. Unity and morality are the factors that can build a good future for us.”

Rouhani said the Persian New Year of 1399 would be “a year of opening great projects, a boom year with the help of all the people in the economy sector.” “It will be a year of development in people’s lives, in our economic relations with the world and in our interactions with our neighbours,” Rouhani continued.

The Iranian President also touched on US sanctions against Tehran, saying that “we have not failed in front of the pressures of the United States.”

Nowruz, or “new day,” is an age-old observance of the beginning of spring and among the most meaningful dates on the Persian calendar, when families convene and exchange presents.

Iran remains the hardest-hit nation in the Middle East with 18,407 COVID-19 infections and 1,284 deaths as of Wednesday morning.
