London- While Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani has called on Iranian President Hassan Rouhani “to make revolutionism his fundamental criterion,” the latter said that “being revolutionary means isolating the United States.”

Rouhani pointed out the need for the government to adopt an active foreign policy to face US policies.

For his part, Judiciary Chief Sadeq Larijani said that officials should identify their enemies’ policy, warning from the threat of infiltration and “extending a hand of friendship to the Americans while Washington calls for regime change.”

Meanwhile, the parliament speaker called for facing US policy and the new Senate law “confronting Iran’s destabilizing activities,” and warned against the judiciary’s entry into “internal conflicts,” noting that the economy is the country’s main issue.

The heads of the three authorities (Parliament, the judiciary, and the government) participated in the annual conference of the judicial system at a time when the country witnessed a dispute between Rouhani’s administration and the judiciary authority.

Rouhani defended his government’s policies in concluding the nuclear deal and the foreign policy in general, after the indirect brawl that took place in June between him and Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on the foreign policy.

“Enemies are trying to invent new stories and series every day to keep the government from solving the basic problems and occupy it with marginal issues, Rouhani said, explaining that the current problems in the country are not related to his government, but the problem is in the whole regime, the country, and the people.
