Leader of the Islamic Ummah Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says American officials are lying when they say they are not pursuing regime change in Iran.
The United States will not hesitate for a moment if it thinks it can change the government in Iran, Ayatollah Khamenei emphasized on Saturday in an address to Iranian Air Force commanders in Tehran.
The US will be unable to change Iran’s government since the Islamic system relies on the will of the Iranian people, the Leader pointed out.
“One can change the tactics, but principles must remain rock solid,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
The Leader further underlined that any compromise with arrogant powers will lead nowhere since interventionist powers seek to install autocratic puppets at the helm of the country.
The secret to the longevity of the Islamic Revolution is its reliance on Islamic values, Ayatollah Khamenei underscored.
The Leader stressed that seeking independence should not be translated into hostility with the rest of the world. Independence means resistance against the interventionist powers, which have no respect for the dignity of other nations due to their own interests.
Ayatollah Khamenei went on to reiterate that the imperial order has been manifested in absolute terms in the current American administration.
The United States threatens Iran while ridiculously expecting it to reduce its defensive power, Ayatollah Khamenei added, once again insisting that the resolution of the nation’s economic difficulties does not lie in the lifting of US-led sanctions.
