Iran breaking new grounds in science
The Leader of the Islamic Ummah and Opressed People Seyyed Ali Khamenei has applauded Iranian scientists for breaking new grounds in the global scene of science and technology.
In a Wednesday address to thousands of Iranian workers, Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei termed as “remarkable” the country’s recent achievements in space science, nuclear technology, and genetic research.
“Despite 30 years of sanctions, the children of this country have managed to build advanced rockets and satellite carriers,” the Leader said.
Iranian nuclear scientists have pushed the boundaries in producing the second and third generations of centrifuges with higher enrichment capabilities, he said.
Imam Ali Khamenei added that Iran’s advancements in nuclear research have left world powers deeply impressed.
Referring to Iran’s breakthrough in bio-genetics and stem cell research, he said the country has become the first in the Middle East, and one of the few in the world, to clone animals using stem cells.
He noted that prior to the 1979 victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, “scientific development and self-sufficiency had been blatantly ignored and overlooked, transforming the Iranian nation into a virtually backward one.”
To compensate for years of underdevelopment, Imam Ali Khamenei said that “more efforts needed to be focused on science and production.”
