Ayatullah Khamenei: ‘Economic jihad Iran’s efficient weapon’

shiite news aytollah khamenei irLeader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says economic jihad is the Iranian nation’s “efficient weapon” in countering Western sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

“The enemy, with its inefficient weapon of sanctions, intends to defeat the Iranian nation and its Islamic establishment, but this aggressive goal will be foiled through the officials’ and people’s economic jihad, and the great nation of Iran, with hope for the future, will reach the position it deserves,” Ayatollah Khamenei said on Wednesday. 

Meeting with a group of economic experts from the country’s public and private sectors, the Leader highlighted the significance of more serious concentration on the issue of economy and urged greater efforts for “economic dynamism and progress.” 

Ayatollah Khamenei also called for a more informative introduction of Iranian services and developments in the areas of agriculture, science and technology. 

The Leader further warned against schemes aimed at spreading despair among Iranian youths as part of the enemy’s psychological war against the Iranian nation, and emphasized the need for a constant relay of the country’s progress and achievements. 

Ayatollah Khamenei deplored the sanctions imposed by the United States and its allies against the Islamic Republic as a politically motivated and aggressive move. 

“The reason for these sanctions is not nuclear energy as the process of imposing sanctions started 32 years ago when there was no mention of nuclear issues in the country,” the Leader argued. 

Ayatollah Khamenei, however, downplayed the restrictions, saying, “If sanctions were effective and useful for the enemies, they would have realized the goals of the arrogant powers in the early years after the revolution, let alone that the nation and establishment have gradually become resistant to the sanctions.” 

The Leader also hailed the increase in Iran’s non-oil exports over recent years and called for further promotion of the exports.
