Imam Khamenei: Enemies of Iran Sought to Create Divisions in Country But Failed
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei said the enemies of Iran sought to create divisions in the country but failed as their plots against the Islamic Republic have united the Iranian nation.
In an address to a large number of people in the northeastern city of Shirvan, Ayatollah Khamenei said that Iran enjoys long-lasting political stability thanks to the nation's "prudence, vigilance and insight," which have led to the country's scientific, economic and industrial progress.
Imam Khamenei urged the three legislative, executive, and judicial bodies in Iran to remain vigilant against the enemies' conspiracy aiming to disrupt calm and tranquility in the country.
"Stoking instability in different countries is among the arrogant [powers'] insidious policies," Imam Khamenei said, adding "however, Iran enjoys "exemplary peace and political stability" thanks to the praiseworthy awareness and insight of the Iranian nation and their participation in the country's affairs."
The Imam pointed out that the stability and tranquility of the Iranian nation have helped it "show off its capabilities to the world despite the enemies' threats, sanctions and wickedness."
According to Imam Khamenei, the enemies who seek to wear the Iranians out and frustrate them through the imposition of sanctions must learn their lessons from the nation's will and determination to defend the Islamic establishment.
Imam Khamenei arrived in Bojnourd Wednesday morning on a week-long visit. He was officially welcomed at the airport by a number of local authorities.
During his week-long stay, Ayatollah Khamenei is to hold separate meetings with people from different walks of life to become closely familiar with their problems.
Meeting with families of wartime martyrs, as well as provincial academics and clerics is also on Imam Khamenei's schedule.
