Chairman of Iran's Expediency Council (EC) Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani has warned against arrogant powers’ plots to make the Iranian nation succumb to their demands, urging vigilance to counter such moves. Rafsanjani noted on Monday that by imposing tough and unfair sanctions and exerting all-out pressure on the Islamic Republic, the arrogant powers seek to accomplish a task that cannot be carried out through war. They intend to make the Iranian nation yield to their bullying demands, he added. The EC chairman stated that hegemonic powers always seek their own interests in other states and do not care about those countries' people. Rafsanjani also called for prudence and wisdom, underlining the importance of making rational decisions to confront plots. SF/SS/AZ
