Sanctions a tool for Iran’s economic growth: commander

Tehran, Nov 21, IRNA – Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Deputy Commander Brigadier-General Hossein Salami says the sanctions imposed against Iran have become a tool for further growth and prosperity of the country’s economy.

Speaking at a nationwide session of Basij officials of the judiciary, he said Iran is now the harbor for security of regional stability, energy, trade and shipping in the Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman, adding that political security and stability, trust of people in the establishment and Iran’s dignity are at a high level.

He said: “Our dispute with the West is that they want to make an inefficient, unsuccessful and defeated model out of Iran and are not interested to see Iran set an example for Islamic communities.”

Salami further remarked there was a time when the Iranian revolution was forced to preserve its territorial integrity within its borders but today the border of political and ideological influence of the Islamic Revolution, influence of the resistance culture and Iran’s steadfastness are thousands of kilometers beyond its national geographical boundaries.

He termed the sanctions imposed on Iran as a tool for growth and prosperity of Iran’s economy and said: “Today we are more powerful than the past eight years and development of Iran’s power is heading forward at an amazing speed.”

Salami referred to the success of Iranian young athletes in international arena and said this self-confidence of our youth and their presence in international domains are indicative of the fact that “we’ve broken the siege.”
