Iran does not pose a threat to the world despite attempts by the Islamic Republic's enemies to conjure a worldwide conspiracy of "Iranaphobia," Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has claimed.
"Our enemies want to establish 'Iranophobia' across the world; to tell the world that Iran is a threat," he said in an interview Wednesday with state television in Tehran.
"Under the pretext of Iranophobia, the killers are able to do whatever they want in the region and interfere however much they want," Rouhani added.
Despite Western concerns over Iran's disputed nuclear ambitions, Rouhani stated that his country's activities were "completely peaceful".
