The Americans’ resorting to military attack is a remote possibility, but if so, Iranians counter-attack will not be merely regional, but covering a vaster scene,” the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khameneie said.
Ayatollah Khameneie stressed in his Wednesday evening meeting with the Islamic system officials that solidarity and harmony among them is a dire necessity, adding, “Insistence in disturbing unity is violating religious duties.”
Ayatollah Khameneie encouraged everyone who might have gone astray in “choosing the path, mentality, or deeds” to get back to the right path and to take advantage of the sacred moments of the fasting month of Ramadhan to do so.
Islamic Revolution Leader urged the entire system officials to heed their words, their deeds and their thoughts, and to beware that their mistakes would lead to greater problems than those of the ordinary people.
Ayatollah Khameneie emphasized that efforts aimed at expanding the dimensions of observing comprehensive justice are among the highest manifestations of piety, adding, “Judiciary, executive, and social justice in distribution of possibilities and opportunities and justice in selection of individuals are among real facades of justice in real sense of the word.”
Ayatollah Khameneie said that observing self-control, and in other words, swallowing one’s wrath, is another aspect of piety, warning, “Certain people are busy sowing the seeds of political discord among various factions and individuals and countering such movements is among the clear manifestations of piety.”
Emphasizing that attracting maximally and detracting minimally is among the major and fundamental policies of the system, the Islamic Revolution Leader added, “Of course the scale and meter stick for doing so is the fundamentals and the values, but care should be taken that the different individuals’ levels of pieties differ and those that had been parts of the system, but have due to making mistakes, or negligence become idle should be advised and properly guided back to the Right Path.”
After focusing over the blessings of fasting at the service of overcoming the shortcomings both in country’s internal affairs and in the Islamic world’s problems, Ayatollah Khameneie called on the officials to heed the prevailing realities in the camp of the Iranian nation and the camp of the global oppression in order to analyze the internal and international affairs and developments correctly, adding, “Contemplation over realities of these camps during the past 32 years shows that the Iranian nation and the Islamic Republic have kept on paving the very path of the late Imam Khomeini and the Revolution, but the opposite camp has been subject to changes.”
Islamic Revolution Leader said that the declining trend of the Iranian nation’s enemies’ might and the ascending process of the Islamic Republic as the second reality worth heeding, adding, “Although the opposite front of the Islamic Republic considers itself as the global community, which is a big lie, but the main axes of that front are merely the US and the Zionists.”
He noted that opposing can either be at surface level, but the opposition of the Zionist regime and America against the Islamic Republic is quite fundamental.”
Further focusing on the same issue, Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated, “Fundamental opposition is in fact opposing the entire existence of a phenomenon, and as we consider the Zionist regime as a forged, fake and definitely collapsing entity, that regime, too, is opposed to the existence of the Islamic system.”
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution focusing on existing fundamental opposition in Iran-US relations added, “The Americans’ approach towards us, despite the entire words the US officials have uttered regarding the need for the Islamic Republic’s behavior change is an approach based on negating the existence of the Islamic system and we, too, are opposed to the oppressor and super power aspects of the United States and disapprove of them.”
Elaborating on the reasons and the manifestations of the declining trend of might of the Iranian nation’s enemies, Ayatollah Khameneie referred to lack of popularity of both the Zionist regime and the United Sates throughout the world, adding, “World nation’s wrath against these two regimes, their being humiliated in recent years’ military events in Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine, their being entangled with severe economic depressions, their defeats in their policies regarding Syria, Lebanon and Palestine, the lowered self confidence of the US and Israeli officials and the incompetence of the US officials in making decisions regarding keeping on occupying, or evacuating their forces from Iraq and Afghanistan are manifestations of the Iranian nation’s enemies’ declining and shaky power.”
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution meanwhile listed the reasons for the ascending process of the Islamic Republic’s progress in various scientific and technological fields, adding, “In addition to the brilliant onward movement in various fields, in social and spiritual aspects, too, the Iranian nation is highly spirited, and the mere fact that 40 million people attended the last year election polls is proof for the social and political dynamism in the country.”
Ayatollah Khameneie also referred to the unique popular support for Iran among the Muslim nations, remembering the enthusiastic receiving of the Iranian officials throughout the past decades, adding, “The Iranian nation with its successful political experiences in the Middle East and the other parts of the world and full of hope for the future, keeps of paving its way towards the future and this fact confirms the ascending process of the Islamic Republic.”
Stressing the need for thinking, contemplating and planning in the course of the confrontation with the enemy’s front the Islamic Revolution Leader emphasized, “They have proper planning and rely on precise programming in confrontation with us, and we, too, need to have planning, safeguard our unity and wisely and bravely move towards the future.”
Elaborating the aliens’ programs for Iran, Ayatollah Khameneie referred to the economic pressure, the military threats, the psychological war and fomenting political chaos and sabotaging inside the country, adding, “Side by side with all these programs the Americans prepare the book of sanctions, threats and psychological war, announcing also that they are ready also ready for talks.”
Pointing to the Americans’ resorting to all these plots throughout that past 30 years, Ayatollah Khamenei said, “The 30-year sanctions against Iran, continuous threats during the tenures of various US presidents, poisonous propagation about Imam Khomeini and the Iranian nation prove that today, too, they are resorting to the same old methods in confrontation with Iran.”
The Islamic Revolution Leader considered the Americans’ declaring of their readiness for holding talks, too, a repeated scenario, denounced negotiations under the shadow of force, adding, “Of course we negotiated with the Americans over two issues, namely over Iraq and over another topic that they regarded as important security matter, but those experiences, too, prove that whenever they reach the limits of their guts at the negotiation table when they get faced with pure logic they resort to force and unilaterally end the talks.”
“We have ruled out negotiations with America clearly stating our reasons why we have done so, because we do not consider talking under the shadow of threats and pressure as meaningful dialogue, and as the esteemed state officials have announced, we always favor negotiations, but not with the Americans who favor talks under the shadow of threats, sanctions and oppression,” Ayatollah Khameneie added.
The Islamic Revolution Leader reiterated, “Naturally, if they would descend from the rotten latter of being a superpower and abandon threats and sanctions and stop pre-determining final objectives and ends for the negotiations, we have already announced, we are ready for holding talks, but it is in fact they that are not the type to negotiate, and are after imposing their will.”
“The Americans had better realize they cannot resort to pressure against Iran similar to the others, because the Islamic Republic of Iran would not yield to any type of pressure and would respond to any pressure respectively,” he added.
Focusing over the nuclear issue, Ayatollah Khamenei once again considered having access to the full cycle of the nuclear fuel technology as the natural right of the Iranian nation, stressing, “The Iranian nation and officials will not compromise over this right and God willing, constructing nuclear power plants and manufacturing their fuel inside Iran, they would pursue and materialize that right.”
The Islamic Revolution Leader considered some arguments of the Americans regarding the provision of the nuclear fuel that Iran needs as nonsense and out of context, referring to the untrustworthiness of the aliens in case of the 20% enriched fuel for Tehran Research Reactor (TRR), adding, “In accordance with the international norms of such deals we had bought the fuel that Iran needs two decades ago, but as soon as they sensed we needed that 20% fuel again they started a nasty game, that was of course a big mistake of the United States and the west, in which they became the losers.”
He said that encouraging Iran to produce the 20% enriched fuel and proving the untrustworthiness of America and the other producers of the fuel were the obvious results of the west’s game over the 20% enriched fuel, emphasizing, “The incidence proved the fact to entire nations that that are truly not trustworthy.”
The Islamic Revolution Leader considered the Americans’ negative propagations regarding the human rights in Iran as ridiculous, adding, “As they have proved in Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine, they attach no value to human lives, but they arrogantly talk about the violation of human rights in Iran.”
Referring to the very resolute and good policies adopted by the officials to counter the enemies’ plots, including the economic sanctions, the leader said, “God willing, resorting to these policies and under the umbrella of unity and sympathy, the sanctions would be turned into opportunities.”
The leader of the Islamic Revolution considered the qualitative and quantitative increase of national production of great importance in this regard, adding, ” We need proper management over the imports, and if revisions over laws are needed, the Parliament should do that.”
Referring to the enemies’ efforts aimed at aggrandizing the small problems, Ayatollah Khamenei said, “The differences of opinion between the government and the parliament is not a catastrophe, but turning it to an unsolvable gap and an incurable would is a grave mistake.”
“We have commissioned the Guardian Council to interfere in the dispute between the parliament and the government, clarifying the barriers of each one’s responsibilities and powers and materializing the Constitutional rule of separation among the system’s three branches of power,” the Leader of the Islamic Revolution added.
He advised all to stick to the rules and not to play at the field of the enemy, reiterating, “The enemy is after depriving the officials of the people’s trust and no one should speak in way to make the people lose trust in the government, the parliament, and the judiciary force.”
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution meanwhile criticized putting under question the presented statistics by the concerned organizations, reiterating, “Such moves that lead to weakening the trust of the people in the system should be avoided.”
President Mahmoud Ahamdinejad in this meeting presented a comprehensive report on the government’s efforts in various cultural, scientific and technological, construction and development, mines and industries, administrative reforms, foreign policy, and interior management fields.
He singled out the nation’s advancement in
aerospace technology announcing that Iran’s second research and
communications satellite would be launched into space in near future.
The President referred to the positive economic growth, decreased inflation and the blossoming stock exchange markets of the country, as well as goal orienting of the subsidies project, and boosting the country’s non-oil exports as the peaks of his government’s success.
Regarding the imposed sanctions which he said are the result of the enemy’s bad temperedness he said, “By grace of God and relying on the support of the Iranian nation we would turn the sanctions into opportunities at the service of major developments, economic reforms, and qualitative and quantitative improvement of our national production.”
He said that the initiators of the resolutions would be urged to feel sorry for their behavior.
The Iranian President also said that the Iranian nation favors holding talks in the framework of justice, adding, “While favoring just negotiations, the Iranians would not compromise the slightest bit over their rights.
