“America has a deep-rooted enmity against the Iranian nation and whether Trump is elected or Biden, it will not have any impact on the US’ main policy to strike the Iranian nation,” Qalibaf said on Sunday.
“The enemy did not achieve its goals due to the Iranian nation’s resistance and might,” he said in reference to the recent US policies and measures against Iran at the UN Security Council.

“However, we should not be content with these legal and political defeats of the US and must not forget that our oppressive enemy will advance step by step to form a new sanctions regime if we neglect,” the speaker noted.
“Experience shows that whenever we acted passively against US hostile polices, more pressure has been imposed on the people’s livelihoods, so it is necessary to prevent such pressures by taking more active, smart, and effective measures,” Qalibaf said.
In relevant remarks last week, Head of Iran’s Civil Defense Organization Gholamreza Jalali said his country has chosen "active resistance" to ward off the enemy's “all-out pressure" strategy.

"The enemy’s main strategy is still all-out pressure except for a military war, and the approach of the Supreme Leader is focused on active resistance,” Jalali said.
“Public awareness and education, reassuring and alerting officials against threats are among the key principles of the Civil Defense Week program in 2020,” he noted, adding, “Our general approach is to support the government against the enemy’s all-out pressure.”
