Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People has described the measures taken against Iran by Western countries as the result of their “weakness and desperation.”
“The issuance of anti-Iran resolution, taking stance against the Islamic establishment… and the shameful and disgraceful insult to the Qur’an are measures that the arrogant powers have taken out of weakness and desperation,” Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei said in a meeting with members of the Assembly of Experts on Thursday.
The Leader also described the West’s status in the international arena as “weak and precarious.”
“This increasing weakness is the result of the Islamic awakening that has caused some of the West’s allies in the region to think of some reconsideration to free [themselves] from the pressure of the Islamic wave and the dead-end they have been trapped into, but to no avail,” Imam Khamenei added.
The Leader said the West’s “scheming and planning” prove “the Islamic front’s power, experience and increasing awareness.”
“As a result of the enemy’s pressures and the hard conditions during the past three decades, the [Iranian] people and officials have become more resilient,” Imam Khamenei stated.
The Leader described the Iranian nation as the “main supporter of the Islamic establishment,” saying that the enemy is trying to “ruin the people’s trust in the [country’s] officials” through propaganda.
Imam Khamenei stressed that the leadership of the establishment has always supported the Iranian government in the past and would continue to do so.
