Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said in his weekly cabinet session on Wednesday that the Majlis [Parliament] has a powerful place in Iran because it passes legislation obligatory for everyone.

In late 2019, some demonstrations took place and the enemy was planning to exploit them, but the people of different parts of the country took to the streets and showed solidarity, unity and national security, he said.

Referring to the terrorist assassination of senior IRGC commander Lieutenant-General Qassem Soleimani at the order of US President Donald Trump, he said no one thought the necessity of fighting terrorism and to what extent the security of the neighboring states are important to Iran. General Soleimani was the symbol of stability, national security and fighting terrorism.

He touched the nationwide rallies of the 41st anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, saying that the participation of people was magnificent.

Rouhani added that another day of national honor will be Friday, the day of parliamentary elections.
