Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says Iran’s logic is based on cooperation with other nations and peoples.
Ayatollah Khamenei made the comments in a Tuesday meeting with the visiting Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban in Tehran, where the Leader pointed to “some exceptions with specific reasons” in such cooperation.
“But excluding those certain cases, we respond to honest emotions and policies with truthful emotions,” said the Leader of the Islamic Revolution.
The Leader further pointed out that Iran has launched an inter-faith dialogue between Islam and Christianity, which provides an opportunity to strengthen common ground and help the manifestation of truth.
“Increasing commonalities and bringing facts to light” are a step towards creating the right perception and are among Islamic principles, he added.
The Leader described the absence of correct and mutual perception to be the source of many instances of enmity, malevolence and regret, stating that today, in the propaganda-ridden atmosphere of the world, facts are represented skewed and such polluted environments are damaging to the humanity.
Ayatollah Khamenei also censured Western media for their Iranophobia campaign over the past four decades, describing such bids as another example of the West’s deceitfulness.
He also noted that a slow spiritual growth was discernible among the young generation in the US and European countries.
“A slow and imperceptible spiritual germination is taking shape both in Europe and the United States, which has the youths as its pivot,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, adding that in the future, it is also likely that Europe can generate concordance between material, scientific, and technological development and spirituality.
The Hungarian PM, for his part, voiced satisfaction regarding his presence in Iran and said he had come to the country with a large economic and commercial delegation in attendance in order to boost the bilateral ties. “I believe there are many capacities for bilateral cooperation,” Orban said.
“Mutual understanding is the basis and foundation for lasting cooperation. Considering Iran’s eminent and respectable position in international equations, we hope to be able to create the opportunity for bilateral cooperation on different levels with your support.”
