Leader of Islamic Republic of Iran Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei on Thursday drew attention to media warfare launched by US and Israeli spy agencies, aimed at exaggerating the country’s current economic woes.
Imam Khamenei made the remarks in a meeting with members of the Assembly of Experts on Thursday.
“Today, the Islamic Establishment is faced with an all-out economic warfare which is led by a war room with utmost precision and effort,” he said, adding “but besides this economic warfare, another important warfare in the realm of media is taking on, which is often neglected.”
The Leader went on to add, “according to the intelligence we have obtained, American and Zionist spy agencies funded by some regional states around us have launched a media and propaganda warfare and are making plans and earnest attempts to infect our society’s public opinion.”
Ayatollah Khamenei warned that the media warfare aims to create anxiety, despair and pessimism among the Iranian people by exaggerating the country’s current economic issues.
