Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei praised the presence of the Iranian nation on the political scene and said recent regional events are a sign of the grandeur of the Islamic Republic in world arena. In a message to the 54th meeting of the Union of Islamic Students Associations in Europe on Saturday, Ayatollah Khamenei said, “This year, your meeting is convened in the midst of major (regional) events, each of which is a sign of the grandeur and prestige of Iran and its revolutionary nation.”
“(All acts) of martyrdom, military show of force, the unparalleled popular presence, strong spirit and firm determination of youths, alongside thousands of associations active in the field of science and technology, as well as a religious and spiritual approach among a major portion of youths across the country, all herald the emergence of a unique phenomenon in today’s world — a phenomenon that can have profound and decisive effects on the future of history,” the Leader added.
Ayatollah Khamenei further emphasized that the second phase of the Islamic Revolution, with the grace of God, should be able to bring this phenomenon to its perfection.
“In this critical quest, all hopes are pinned on knowledgeable, erudite and faithful youths, and you can be among these history-making selected few,” the Leader concluded.
In his message to the 53rd meeting of the Union of University Students Islamic Associations in Europe last January, the Leader encouraged the Iranian youth studying abroad to engage in scientific jihad (endeavor for the sake of God) aimed at boosting the nation’s self-reliance.
