Leader Urges Acceleration in Iran’s Scientific Growth
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei stressed the need for efforts to quicken pace of Iran’s scientific progress.
Imam Khamenei’s remarks came on Saturday morning, while he was visiting an exhibition of the country’s latest achievements in the fields of nanotechnology and biotechnology, held in Tehran.
The Leader also hailed Iran for its scientific progress, which is higher than the average of the world’s.
He underlined that the country’s scientific development should further accelerate.
Back in 2000, Iran ranked 56th in the field of nanotechnology. Within 15 years, the Islamic Republic made a giant stride, standing 7th in the field.
The Leader noted that remarkable development in nanotechnology industry is a sample of Iran’s progress in other fields.
Ayatollah Khamenei said Iran needs to become stronger day by day in order to gain the necessary might to counter the enemies in different arenas.
The products showcased in the exhibition included items with applicability in nanomaterial, medicine and medical treatment, textile, agriculture, water, power plants, construction, oil and energy, and automotive industry.
Ayatollah Khamenei also explained that continuation of progress in nanotechnology industry will be guaranteed once people enjoy the results of scientific projects and research in their life.
The Leader further stressed that “political motives” should stay away from the country’s scientific atmosphere to ensure sustainable progress.
