The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei called on Iranian lawmakers to make the Islamic Republic’s parliament a stronghold against arrogant schemes.
In a message to the inauguration ceremony of the new Iranian parliament which was read to audience on Saturday, the leader said the revolutionary and legal commitments oblige the parliamentarians to make the legislative body as a solid stronghold against the outrageous tricks and excessive demands of the hegemonic powers.
His eminence warned against stormy conditions both in region and the world, along with the adventurist policies adopted by hegemonic powers.
“The turbulent state of the region and the world and the international adventurism of oppressors and their vassals have confronted the Islamic Iran with conditions more complicated than before,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
“Such events calls for vigilance, firm will and bright initiatives by all officials.”
“It is the revolutionary and legal duty of you to make the parliament a stronghold against the schemes, charms and impudently excessive demands of the Arrogance,” the Leader’s message message read.
Imam Khamenei also voiced congratulations to the nation over the coincidence of the opening of the 10th parliament with the auspicious times of holy Shaban month which is a period of spirituality, humbleness and great religious occasions
