Speaking to the Friday prayers participants this noon, Ayatollah Sedighi lambasted the US’s new round of sanctions, saying that Americans have not hesitated doing any vicious thing against the Islamic Republic in the past 40 years, but the Iranian nation has always managed to overcome its problems under the pressure.
He noted that despite what the US thinks, sanctions have made Iran become self-sufficient in domestic production in different scientific fields over the years, and the United States has always been on the losing side of the 40-year-long war it has waged against the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Addressing US President Donald Trump, Ayatollah Sedighi said that “our young generation’s pursuit of independence and self-sufficiency along with your sanctions have made us meet our demands by our own domestic products.”
He noted that “toady, our political, defensive and military power, as well as our regional influence, are way greater than 40 years ago.”
The interim prayers leader referred the US’s constant warmongering, which encompasses all types of aggression, from military and economic war to a media war, saying the United States is doomed to decline and fall as the Islamic Republic of Iran has been gaining more and more self-sufficiency and power in the past years.
