Iran mocks American democracy, says it ‘fragile’ and weak
On Wednesday, hundreds of Trump supporters stormed a session of Congress that was certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s election win.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani mocked the chaos unleashed on the US Capitol by President Donald Trump’s supporters and said it exposed the fragility of Western democracy.
In his speech, Rouhani also urged the incoming Biden administration “to make up (for the past) and restore the country to a position worthy of the American nation, because the American nation is a great nation”.
In addition to Rouhani, several other world leaders used the opportunity to issue scathing critiques of the US and its attempts to promote democracy and human rights overseas.
