President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday that US President Donald Trump’s wrong move made the Muslims further united on Quds and Palestine, “as today we witness' new Intifada and movement by the Palestinian nation against the 'Zionist regime'.

(MNA) -- Rouhani, who was addressing a session of High Council of Cultural Revolution, said "the mistake of the US president in announcing movement of the US embassy to the Holy Quds made the Muslims more united on the issue of Quds and Palestine, and the issue of al-Quds, which was partly becoming a second important issue in recent years, has returned to its original position."

"It was a plot against Palestine, al-Quds, and the World of Islam, which has so far had a reverse result for those who have hatched it, and today we are witnessing a new intifada and a new movement by the Palestinian people against the Zionist Regime," continued the President.

Referring to the anniversary of the formation of the Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution, the President stated that "it is very appropriate for us to assess and monitor the actions and work of the Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution in these days and evaluate how much we have been able to take better steps forward on the path to the development of the country and the world."

Rouhani, also mentioned the fact that today communication has undergone a shift and has led to a widespread intellectual and scientific communication in the world, saying "these conditions require the Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution to work to meet the expectations of society and improve academic and scientific issues and make serious decisions."

"The process and methods of our actions must be such that the more effective decisions are made, so that the expectations of Leader, people, universities and those working in cultural fields will be provided", the President added.

President Rouhani stated that one of the important duties of the Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution is to examine cultural issues and the process of scientific and academic issues and make the necessary decisions on the path to improvement of the situation.

Referring to the 27th anniversary of Dr. Mofatteh's martyrdom, and the days of unity of the university and the seminary, Rouhani emphasised the need for closer ties between the two institutions, and said martyrs Beheshti, Motahari and Mofatteh were among the forerunners of closer relationship between the seminary and the university.

Rouhani went on to add that "the Islamic Movement and Revolution were very effective in bringing the seminary and the university closer, and this relationship should be continued very firmly."

At the meeting of the Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution, other sections of the document on international scientific and technological cooperation of the Islamic Republic of Iran with the aim of strengthening the communication and interaction of science and technology on the national and international fields and providing the appropriate groundwork for exchanging various fields of science and technology in the world were reviewed.
