Iranians do not need outside custodians: Speaker

IRNA – Iran’s challenges will be solved through its people’s resolution, and Iraninas do not need any guardian from outside the country, Iran’s parliament speaker said on Sunday.

‘People, at their own volition, are trying to lead the country toward progress, welfare, and security,’ Ali Larijani said upon arriving in Shiraz.

‘Their presence is a valuable support for the country’s move,’ he said, expressing hope that all Iranians will be united in the march toward the same goal.

Larijani arrived in Shiraz to take part in the rallies to mark the 39th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.

Today, people all across Iran are commemorating the 39th anniversary of its Islamic Revolution in form of rallies. The day of Imam Khomeini’s return to Iran from exile (Feb 1, 1979) marks the beginning of the Ten-Day Dawn in ceremonies which culminate with the anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution on February 11, 1979.

Iranian people toppled the US-backed Pahlavi regime 39 years ago, ending 2,500 years of absolute monarchy in the country.

The speaker of Iran’s parliament will also attend inauguration ceremonies of development projects, including phase 2 of Shiraz subway.
