TEHRAN -- Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani has said that the threats made against Iran by the enemies are on the decline.

Larijani made the remarks during a speech at a conference on national resistance and passive defense which was held at the IRIB International Conference Center in Tehran on Sunday.
“The graph of the threats against the Islamic Republic is not ascending, but rather it shows a descending trend due to the resistance of the Islamic Republic and the people’s perseverance,” Larijani stated.
The era of threats against Iran has come to an end, Larijani said, adding, “Iran is now in a stable situation and they (the enemies) cannot adopt a hostile position toward Iran.”
He also downplayed the current threats against Iran in the political area as idle threats.
Elsewhere in his remarks, he stated that the nuclear weapons stockpiled by a handful of countries are posing the most serious danger to the world.
He added that certain countries’ alleged support for the nuclear disarmament campaign is just a “pose” because no practical measure has been taken in this regard.
Commenting on the tide of popular uprisings rolling across the Middle East and North Africa, Larijani said that the world’s dictators and the leaders of arrogant countries must take a lesson from these developments.
The hegemonistic powers are seeking to take advantage of the current situation in the Arab world, with the goal of serving their own interests, but Iran is causing them trouble, he noted.
He also reaffirmed Iran’s support for the Arab peoples who are seeking a change in their governments, saying, “They have the right to enjoy a democratic system and independence and to rid themselves of the yoke of the United States.”
