Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ghasemi says the world is changing and moving in a direction where major powers are becoming more fragile, allowing other countries an opportunity to take control of their own destinies.
Bahram Ghasemi made the remarks in an interview with Mehr News correspondent on the achievements of the Islamic Revolution in the field of foreign policy.
"I believe that the world is moving in the direction where great powers are becoming more fragile every day, and other countries can take hold of their own destiny through wisdom, consensus and unity," he said.
He went on to add, "we have to believe the fact that the world is changing. As you can see, the US today is not the same as it was yesterday, and the future US will certainly not be what it is today."
Ghasemi then explained the concept of ‘No to East, No to West" as one of the slogans of the Islamic Revolution, adding "in my opinion, the meaning of the slogan is that interaction with the East and West is acceptable, but without being under the influence of either of them. We should have cooperation and engagement with them while maintaining our independence, and today this objective has been achieved."
He stressed that the notion of ‘independence" has been the most important factor in Iran"s foreign policy in the past forty years after the Revolution.
"The Islamic Revolution of Iran was not only a source of inspiration for neighboring countries and the region, but also for all other countries across the globe," he added.
