Iran is experiencing its strongest and best situation vis-a-vis its enemies, Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Hossein Salami announced.
“Today, the Islamic Republic of Iran is in its best and strongest conditions vis-a-vis enemies,” Salami said, addressing Iran’s ‘Sixth National Conference on Cyber Warfare’ in Tehran on Wednesday.
He described scientific and technological progress as a means to strengthen Iran’s power, saying, “Scientific leap and growth can disarm the enemy.”
In relevant remarks today, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said Iran has made remarkable and rapid technological and scientific progress during the last three decades despite sanctions and pressures, and enemies are seeking to slow down or stop this progress.
“The young elites and all the Iranian officials and nation should know that the main focus of the front which has today stood against the Islamic Republic is preventing the empowerment of Iran in the field of science and technology,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing a large number of young Iranian elites and researchers in Tehran on Wednesday.
“In analyzing all political, economic, regional and international events and issues, this realistic and major view should rule that there is a powerful front in the world which doesn’t want the Islamic Iran to turn into a powerful country and nation in different fields, specially in science and technology,” he added.
Ayatollah Khamenei underlined the necessity for continued rapid scientific progress in Iran, and said, “Materialization of the Islamic Revolution’s historical mission needs the accelerating scientific movement of the country to continue without slowing down and without any stop, pause or hesitation and laziness.”
