Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says as long as the revolutionary movement and ideology continue to exist, Iran’s progress, influence, grandeur and spiritual dominance will increase in the region and beyond.
Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks in a Wednesday meeting with a number of Iranian elites in the capital, Tehran.
International scientific centers which determine indicators for scientific progress bear testimony to Iran’s development, said the Leader.
Elsewhere in his remarks, the Leader warned against certain “individuals and elements” who, making use of print media and other forums, keep frustrating the people and youth and “negating” the country’s scientific developments as well as key accomplishments.
Ayatollah Khamenei urged officials to remain on the watch regarding such moves, saying, “The country’s major scientific developments in the fields of nano, stem cells and nuclear issue are not an illusion, but rather realities which the whole world is aware of.”
Therefore, said the Leader, to disappoint the youth and deny the scientific and technological momentum in the country would be a betrayal of the country and of national honor.
The Leader said the Iranian young generation can be proud of taking the credit for leading the country to top levels of scientific progress.
