Iranian President Hassan Rohani told a cabinet meeting on Wednesday November 4 that the Leader’s statement about “infiltration by the enemy” should not be used to justify the abuse of power.

“The recommendations provided by the leader regarding infiltration” are to strengthen unity, Rohani said; “They should not be taken advantage of to suppress and marginalize anyone we do not agree with.”

Following the finalization of the nuclear agreement between Iran and the 5+1, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei has warned against normalizing relations with the United States and urged the government to be vigilant against “infiltration by the enemy”.

Meanwhile, the head of the Revolutionary Guards has also said that just because agreement has been reached on the nuclear issue, some might think that agreement can be reached on all issues, but this is nothing but “sedition”.

Yesterday, the national broadcaster reported that five had been arrested on charges that linked them to “enemy infiltration plans”. Among them were prominent journalists and activists.
