Speaking on Thursday, Chairman of the parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said Boroujerdi reiterated that “no power can prevent Iran’s progress in scientific and nuclear science fields”.
“Islamic Iran will powerfully and rigidly continue its divine path,” the legislator added.
He said the main cause of enemies’ economic war on Iran is that they are fearful about the scientific advancements made by the country.
He noted that unlike the will and supposition of the enemies of Islam, including US the Islamic Iran has turned into a powerful country in the world today.
Last month, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei hailed the country’s experts and scientists for their strenuous efforts which have resulted in Iran’s rapid scientific advancement, and urged the country’s researchers not to hesitate one moment about continuing their firm movement on the path of progress.
Addressing a large number of young elites in Tehran in October, Ayatollah Khamenei expressed pleasure in the atmosphere of dialogue and interaction dominating the country’s scientific move and progress, but meantime urged the Iranian scientists to accelerate their efforts.
“Of course there is one concern that a status of satiation and satisfaction will be created due to the country’s rapid scientific move and this is while we are still at the start of the path and this (present) scientific speed should not be decelerated or stopped,” he underlined.
Ayatollah Khamenei said that Iran is lagging behind the world’s top countries in area of science and technology because it had been ruled by dependent, ignorant and autocratic rulers for centuries.
Thus, this wide distance with the world’s top scientific powers and the existence of rather powerful rivals in the region double the necessity for Iran’s accelerated scientific move towards a top position in area of science which deserves the Iranian nation’s prestige, he added.
Iran has taken wide strides in science and technology, particularly in medical and medicinal fields, in recent years.
