Iran President in New York to Convey 'Message of Regional Peace'
Tue Sep 24, 2019 02:35AM

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has arrived in New York to attend the 74th meeting of the UN General Assembly, where he plans to convey the message of Middle East peace to the world.

"We hope in the very sensitive situation of the region today we would be able to convey the message of our regional nations, which is the message of regional peace and end of any interference in the sensitive regions of Persian Gulf and the Middle East," Rouhani said upon arrival in New York on Monday.

He said he is also carrying the "message of the great nation of Iran, which is under the pressure of a cruel economic war."

"Our nation is a nation of resistance, perseverance, and wants all sides to return to their commitments and to the law," he noted, expressing the hope that he would be able to convey the Iranian nation's message to the international community at the UN General Assembly.

Before leaving for New York, Rouhani told reporters at Tehran's Mehrabad Airport that the peace initiative that he will soon unveil at the United Nations General Assembly is aimed at establishing long-term peace in the Persian Gulf, something he said is simply not achievable as long as outsiders are present.

Rouhani said his Hormuz Peace Initiative (HOPE) is designed to include all countries of the region and aims to expand cooperation beyond regional security.

"This plan is about collective work within the Persian Gulf region and we want all countries of the region to partake in it," Rouhani said. "Of course, the plan that will be laid out at the United Nations won't be just about security, but rather economy and other issues, all in line with security matters."

"We believe the solution for the region comes from inside the region and those who come from the outside can never bring peace and security," he said Monday morning.

Citing America's military interventions in the Middle East as an example, Rouhani said since entering the region in 2001, the United States has failed to bring back calm to any of the countries that it has deployed forces to.

"I hope we can roll out this plan and tell the world that Iran is looking for lasting peace in the region and is willing to" discuss it with other countries with the UN involved in the process, he said of his HOPE initiative.

It has been known for some time that Israel will be doing a false flag attack on US or US ally assets, blame Iran, and then use it as an excuse to "retaliate' using nuclear weapons to bomb Iran's facilities.

Trump has been doing 'dog whistles' to let Israel know that using nuclear weapons is perfectly logical.

It has been thought that the false flag attack would initially take place on US soil but it would be easier to do the attack in the Middle East.

Obviously if Israel strikes Iran with nuclear weapons then the Straits of Hormuz will be closed in the war that takes place quickly afterwards which is why the UK and Australia are putting their naval vessels in the Straits of Hormuz to try and keep it open.

No doubt Trump is hoping Robert O'Brien will be able to negotiate something once Israel has done considerable damage to Iran's oil and nuclear energy resources. The world has already replaced Iran's oil supply with oil from other suppliers.

Iran's and its allies know that this option is on the table and no doubt have a strategy it can very quickly put in place once it begins.
