Iran must not look to West on path of progress: Leader

Press TV – Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the Iranian nation should look to the developing nations in the East on its path of scientific progress, relying on the Western states will not help the country’s growth.

“Those countries are mostly in Asia. Therefore, we should look to the East, not the West,” he said in a meeting with scientific elites in Tehran on Wednesday.

“Looking to the West and Europe has no other benefit than being stood up, begging and humiliation,” he added.
