The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Ali Khamenei blasted the western states for their plots and conspiracies against Iran, but meantime stressed that all enemy plots will fail similar to the past.
“As enemies’ plots have always failed since the onset of the Islamic Revolution, all their tricks and plots at this juncture will end in failure as well,” The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Ali Khamenei said, addressing a large number of people in Esfarayen city, Northeastern Iran, on Saturday.
The Supreme Leader called for the Iranian nation and government’s increased vigilance against enemies’ plots, and said “the Iranian nation is on the scene of a major war of will against the enemies of the country’s progress”, and having a strengthened will and keeping eyes wide open in the confrontation against the enemies in a bid to decipher their tricks are the main two determining factors in this battle.
The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Ali Khamenei hailed Iran’s astonishing progress in different fields, and said, “Progress has no limits and borders and it should be continued so that the Iranian nation will become a role model in different aspects.”
Despite the rules enshrined in the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) entitling every member state, including Iran, to the right of uranium enrichment, Tehran is now under four rounds of UN Security Council sanctions and several western embargos for turning down West’s calls to give up its right of uranium enrichment.
Tehran has dismissed the West’s demand as politically tainted and illogical, stressing that sanctions and pressures merely consolidate Iranians’ national resolve to continue the path.
Iran has made huge achievements in various fields of science and technology, from nuclear knowledge to stem cell and medicine production as well as nanotechnology.
Iranian Health Minister Marziyeh Vahid Dastjerdi announced in August that Iran is now able to synthesize 15 kinds of radiomedicines inside the country, stressing that the achievement was made due to the efforts made by the country’s nuclear scientists.
“Due to the efforts made by the Iranian scientists and the nuclear scientists martyred (by the enemies), we have 15 radiomedicines in our country which are vital for providing diagnosis and treatment services to the patients, specially cancerous patients,” she said in a ceremony in Tehran at the time.
Also, in January, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in a ceremony in Tehran unveiled 6 new types of home-made medicines used for treating various kinds of diseases.
The Iranian president unveiled 2 new types of drugs and 4 types of raw materials for treating osteoporosis, hemophilia and neurological, skin and muscle diseases and breast cancer.
Iranian scientists had also in 2011 managed to produce a new type of anti-cancer drug using the venoms of reptiles like snakes and scorpions.
“After several years of research and studies on a combination of snake and scorpion venoms, the anti-cancer drug was produced in Iran,” Abbas Zare’, the Director of the Venomous Animals Department of Iran’s Razi Vaccine and Serum Research Institute, told reporters in October 2011.
“This anti-cancer drug has been produced from snake and scorpion venoms after 10 years of research work and has been extracted from the fat (peptide) of such animals,” he added.
