Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that the million strong funeral procession of Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani was a referendum where people voted with their massive turnout that Washington was assuredly the biggest terrorist of the world.

RNA - On Tuesday while talking to reporters during the rallies in Tehran to mark the 41st anniversary of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Zarif denounced the terrorist act of US government in assassinating General Soleimani and added that people in the region abhor the US assassination of the late commander as a terror attack.

The US should learn from the funeral procession of General Soleimani when people took to the streets to mourn the death of a man who saw the US as Iran's enemy, he said, adding that the procession was actually a referendum that showed the actual terrorist is the US.

This year rallies of February 11 in commemoration of the 41st anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution, coincided with the 40th day of the US’ assassination of General Soleimani.

Zarif said people in Iran have shown that the US is detested for the terror attacks.

US President Donald Trump made a move and once again showed that the US has been wrong about the Islamic Revolution in the past 41 years.

He is still making the same mistake, which has made the Iranian people unanimously stand against the move, he said.

About his visit to the Munich security conference, he said that the goal of his visit is to expose the dangers of US policies in the region.

Answering a question about Iran's cards while negotiating with world powers, he said the biggest card Iran has in its hands is the support from the people, which is the basis of the power of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

According to Fars News Agency, he said enemies have failed to truly know the people of Iran even after 41 years and that is why they think that the Iranian people will stop supporting the Islamic Revolution if they keep with their pressures.

During the same event in Tehran, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani lauded the mass-participation of the people in the rallies on the occasion of the 41st anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution, describing it as the best response to the US hostile moves.

This year, the US has increased pressures on Iranians, assassinated the commander Soleimani and trampled on the rights of the Palestinians, which was the biggest crime, so participation of people in the rallies is the best reaction to these crimes, President Rouhani told reporters while joining the ralliers in Tehran on Tuesday.
