SOT, Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iranian Foreign Minister (Farsi): "You need to have a good idea, explain it in concrete terms. If explained in concrete and correct terms, this idea could become global and make you powerful [Spanish translations]. You believed in this power in Bolivia and [Bolivia's President] Evo Morales has shown this power to the world well [Spanish translations]. This is something to take pride in [Spanish translations]. It is not however a source of pride to repeat what other rich countries and the US are saying [Spanish translations]. Even they themselves do not respect those countries who repeat them [Spanish translations]. You have to know that compared to countries who follow the West, we are more respected in the West's eyes."
