TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian President Hassan Rouhani lashed out at superpowers, particularly the US, for meddling in the internal affairs of the Middle East and Latin America, stressing that the two regions are having problems because of trans-regional interferences.

In a meeting with the new Ambassador of Bolivia to Tehran Romina Guadalupe Perez Ramos on Sunday, He added that

“Our region and Latin America have long been facing issues, which we consider as having one root cause, and that is the interference and abuse by major powers,” President Rouhani said today, in a meeting with the new Ambassador of Bolivia to Tehran Romina Guadalupe Perez Ramos, referring to Washington’s destructive role in different regions of the world.

“Bolivians are a revolutionary nation who have always attempted to keep their independence,” he added.

“We deeply believe that any nation that stands up for its interests against aggressors will win, and history is a witness to this fact,” Rouhani said.

Regarding the two countries’ strategic and common goals at international communities, he said, “The two countries have always been alongside each other for realizing their goals and will continue to do so.”

Rouhani expressed hope that the economic, political and cultural relations between the two countries further deepen during the term of the new Bolivian Ambassador, underlining the need for development of relations between Iran and Bolivia in all fields of mutual interest.

The Bolivian Ambassador, who presented her letter of credence to Rouhani during the meeting, said, “Iran and Bolivia have many common points with each other.”

She also delivered the greetings of President Evo Morales to Rouhani and said, “Tehran and La Paz both oppose to the United States’ unilateral policies and arms race in the region, and we support each other’s independence and democracy.”

Late in last month, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif arrived in Santa Cruz, Bolivia and met with Bolivian President Morales. He also met Foreign Minister Diego Pary and some other top-ranking officials of the Latin American country.

Zarif voiced his satisfaction in his visit to Bolivia, and said that the two countries are resolved to expand their mutual cooperation.
