Iranian president Hassan Rowhani warned during a conference with the Iranian interior ministry that increasing military power will not guarantee the country’s security.
He also said that loss of confidence in Iranian society would mean loss of security, reported Iranian news agencies.
Rowhani said in a speech at a conference of Iranian officials commenting on the next presidential election: “We must not let elections become polarized because polarized elections bring trouble for our country.”
The Iranian president also added, “One needs to pay attention to the fact that the base for security is unity, integrity and social asset. Social asset is the greatest asset and when integrity and unity wanes, disagreement, resentment, and division arise.”
Those sowing resentment with their words and pens, are committing a great sin, said Rowhani adding: “Promoting dispute, division and disunion among groups with different ethnicities, language and religion is the greatest sin.”
