Tehran, Feb 8, IRNA – Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said on Monday that people’s massive turn out in the upcoming elections and festivities marking victory anniversary of Islamic Revolution in February 11 will disappoint enemies and ill-wishers.
The Supreme Leader made the remarks in a meeting with commanders and personnel of the Iranian Air Force.
Active presence of people in the upcoming elections will inject a new blood to the country and immune the Islamic Revolution from all plots and conspiracies, said Ayatollah Khamenei.
The Supreme Leader also lauded massive presence of people in February 11 rallies marking victory anniversary of the Islamic Revolution over the past 37 years and said this year once again the Iranian nation will disappoint enemies and ill-wishers.
The Iranian people under any circumstances have remained committed to their pledges and marked the occasion, Ayatollah Khamenei said.
The Islamic Revolution should be kept alive in the minds of people in order to attain its lofty goals, the Supreme Leader said.
The ill-wishers spare no efforts to make the Islamic Revolution deviate from its right track but to no avail, the Supreme Leader said.
The enemies do their utmost to weaken the aspirations of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Khamenei said.
It is very unlikely for the enemies to wage a new war against Iran under the current circumstances but it is not impossible, said the Supreme Leader, adding that they have now focused on soft war in dealing with the Iranian nation and Islamic Revolution.
Preserving the revolutionary thinking in line with the governing rules and principles of the Islamic Revolution will thwart conspiracies of the enemies, Ayatollah Khamenei said.
Referring to the upcoming parliamentary and Assembly of Experts elections, the Supreme Leader said it is among the legitimate rights of the Iranian nation to come to the scene and make decision on their fate through ballot boxes.
Massive turn out of people will bring the country dignity and will insure the Islamic Revolution and for this reason all people are duty bound to carry out their religious duties, Ayatollah Khamenei said.
People’s presence in the polling stations will bring triumph to the Islamic Revolution and humiliating defeat to the enemies, underlined the Supreme Leader.
The Iranian people during all ups and downs never hesitate to support the Islamic Revolution and that is why the Almighty God brought them dignity in the region as well as the globe, Ayatollah Khamenei said.
Those who ignore the enemies and feel sympathy with them will be isolated by people, the Supreme Leader said.
When the enemies smile, you should be vigilant to identify the plot hidden behind such smiles, the Supreme Leader cautioned.
The Americans refuse to answer to the questions posed by the world public opinion on their support for those having a hand in the bloodbath in Yemen and openly continue their support for those promoting merciless state-terrorism in that country, the Supreme Leader said.
On the claims made by the Americans on human rights issues and democracy, the Supreme Leader said they fully support the child killer Zionists and their regional allies that know nothing about elections.
The US administration takes the most savage measures and then smile at you which requires vigilance, the Supreme Leader underlined.
The Iranian people are very vigilant in dealing with the enemies and have thwarted all plots masterminded by them, said the Supreme Leader.
Prior to Supreme Leader’s remarks, Commander of the Army Air Force Brigadier General Hassan Shahsafi briefed the Ayatollah Khamenei on the activities of the force and its prominent position in Iran’s defense doctrine in the region.
