ˈThe present developments indicate change in the 70-year-old global order which was founded by the westerners, including Europe and the US, and formation of a new system,ˈ the Supreme Leader said.
Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to ideological background of the western system, and said, ˈThe westerners throughout many years tried to show the ideological superiority of their system over other parts of the world and different religions, especially Islam, to an extent that unfortunately in the Muslim world some people and personalities as well as governments under the influence of these mottos got to believe in the West’s ideological superiority and this way of thinking still has its supporters.ˈ
The Supreme Leader pointed to the political and military bases of the western civilization, and said, ˈIf nations, governments or political currents are not influenced by the alleged ideological system of the West and they stand up against them, they will be confronted through political and military pressures.ˈ
