Iran's Parliament Speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf stated on Sunday that the United States' "hostility" towards the Middle Eastern country would remain the same nevertheless who becomes the next US president in November.

Commenting on the latest moves made by Washington, Qalibaf insisted that Iran must not become "passive" amid the US "hostile actions," as it would lead only to the escalation of the pressure through sanctions. Despite no consensus regarding Iran sanctions proposed by the US in the United Nations, the country has unilaterally imposed several measures, including an arms embargo, on Tehran.
