Addressing a meeting with ambassadors of the Islamic Republic abroad and foreign minister, the Supreme Leader said that the Islamic Republic of Iran has developed a dialogue in light of public participation in governing system and the divine values.
The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei acknowledged that diplomacy is the scene of confrontation and challenge due to interest conflict, and said that for Iranian ambassadors working for the diplomatic apparatus is beyond the ordinary diplomatic mission because they represent a governing system with which the arrogant powers have developed a basic dispute.
“Officials of Foreign Ministry and ambassadors of the Islamic Republic of Iran are the forerunners in the front of diplomacy,” the Supreme Leader said according to his website.
The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said that the front of the world arrogance is afraid of the name of Islam, because Islam calls for campaign against tyranny, aggression and occupation citing the concern expressed by the arrogant powers about the Islamic symbols of the uprisings in the Arab world and victory of the Islamists in the aftermath of democratic elections.
The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said that the arrogant powers have exercised extensive hostility against the Islamic Republic of Iran and the progress made in science and technology over the past 30 years.
“The young scientists of Iran who have made a breakthrough in science and technology including the nuclear and nanotechnology are proud of being a Basij (volunteer forces) member. That’s why the arrogant powers have targeted Islam.”
The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said that the current hostility of the arrogant powers against the Islamic Republic of Iran is beyond the diplomatic challenges so that the staff of the diplomatic apparatus must work with reliance upon the Almighty God and firm determination in light of a promise by God that they will be rewarded for serving the truth.
He said that strength of the diplomatic apparatus depends on moral strength of the individuals working for the mission and their inner faith in Almighty God, adding that strong belief of every individual forms the inner strength of every society.
The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei advised the family members of the ambassadors to boost their belief in promises made by God for those serving the truth.
The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said that the current status of the Islamic Republic indicates the promises of Almighty God have come true so that the slogans of the Iranian nation in the early stage of the Islamic Revolution are being heard in the countries which have made enmity with Iran over the past 30 years.
“This is the real indication of progress and national power,” The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said.
The Supreme Leader said that the aspirations of the Iranian nation have blossomed out in the Middle East, the Persian Gulf and North Africa proving the God’s promise of help for the Iranian nation who have tolerated hardship because of enmity of the arrogant powers for paving the path of truth and belief in God.
The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said that Iranian diplomats will come out victorious from the negotiating table when they put forward their logic faithfully so that they will impose their logic on the other side something which is possible with reliance upon the blessings of God.
The Supreme Leader said that the political arrangements in the region, Europe and the entire world have undergone dramatic change which should be monitored by the Foreign Ministry.
The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said that the Islamic Awakening in the Islamic countries and mainly the Arab world is a reality and revolutions are underway in those countries.
The Leader cited the developments in the Arab world in 1960s and in Eastern Europe in 1990s and said that the current revolutions in the region and the chain of protests in the western countries are of high magnitude.
The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said that the strong presence of the people on the scenes of protest and the United States’ crackdown are the two basic difference of the current public protests and those which took place in 1990s.
“Some believe that the US is behind the current uprisings in the Arab states just like those who believed that the US was behind the Islamic revolution 30 years ago. It proved not right.”
Elaborating on the revolution in Egypt, the Islamic Revolution Leader said that of course the US did not dislike to replace Hosni Mubarak with a democrat and popular figure, but, the fact is that if a real democrat and popular individual takes office in Egypt, he will absolutely oppose the United States and the zionists.
“What is going on in the region is the Islamic Awakening. Of course, it does not (necessarily) mean that they will follow the model of Iran or the Islamic Republic of Iran,”The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said.
