The president made the remarks in his address to the cabinet session.
Rouhani recalled anniversary of Iraqi invasion of Iran on September 21, 1980, saying that Iranians have experienced hard days and the big international conspiracy was apparently hatched by Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein enjoying support from all Western and Eastern powers.
Iranians could reach victory against the most modern weapons when Iran could not even buy a simple weapon at that time, he noted.
Of course, we embarked on national campaign to manufacture weapons and became self-sufficient in producing military hardware, he added.
The US, the former Soviet Union, the Eastern and Western powers and almost the Arab World supported aggressor and Saddam Hussein’s cruelty and Iranian nation stood bravely against the aggression.
