Iran, Aug 17, 2018 - In response to a nation-wide backlash against the treacherous sellout of the Caspian Sea, Hassan Rouhani confessed how it helps to secure their shuddering regime.

On Wednesday, in a cabinet meeting, Hassan Rouhani said, “We, the five neighboring countries of the Caspian Sea, are negotiating for 20 years and have already resolved some of the problems and some others remain.

In the recent summit one or two very important issues that are of great concern to us and many other countries have been resolved. This is the issue of security in the Caspian Sea. In the negotiations and agreement, we had great achievements in terms of national security. The US and even NATO were plotting to approach the coastline of the Caspian Sea.”
Referring to Iran’s current situation as “worse than poison”
Back in 1988 when Khomeini felt compelled to accept U.N. resolution 598 to accept an immediate ceasefire with Iraq—about 12 months after the resolution had been passed—he famously called it “worse than drinking poison.” Long story short, he had grudgingly accepted the ceasefire, fearing recent victories and advancements of the National Liberation Army of Iran (NLA), the military arm of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) whose biggest member party is the PMOI. War with Iraq was a “divine gift” as Khomeini put it.
In his remarks, Hassan Rouhani compared the Iranian Regime’s current situation with 1988 when they had accepted the ceasefire under PMOI’s pressure and ridiculously tried to paint a picture of victory. He said, “July 1988 and 1990 both had special characteristics for us. In July 1988, on the 27th and 28th, we had the historic Mersad Operation. This operation concluded the war in military victory for us. Because, some assumed, when we accepted the ceasefire and U.N. resolution 598 on 18th July 1988, that this was a sign of weakness of our regime. We still have important legal issues with Iraq that are not resolved. There has been eight years of invasion and today, 30 years after the war ended, there are still unresolved issues.”
