Iranian voters chose “the right and proper path for the country”, President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday, after final election results showed his allies had made significant gains, the AFP reported.
“The owners of this country are the people… they determine the path and direction of this country,” the president said.
“I thank our intelligent and brave people who have taken a step forward,” he said at an auto industry conference in Tehran.
“If there are still some who think that the country must be in confrontation with others, they still haven’t got the message of 2013,” he said.
“Cooperation should be everyone’s concern. Today the era of confrontation is over,” Rouhani added.
