Leader: Enemy Seeking to Create Discontent by Undermining Iran’s Economy
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei reiterated the call for pursuing the policy of “Resistance Economy”, warning that enemies are seeking to impair the country’s economy and create discontent among the people.
Speaking Tuesday at a meeting in Tehran with thousands of people from all walks of life on the occasion of Eid al-Ghadeer, Ayatollah Khamenei renewed his call for the realization of Resistance Economy in Iran and said at the current juncture, the main objective of the enemy is to disturb the country’s economy.
The enemy seeks to cause poor economic conditions for the Iranian people and ultimately “create discontent with Islam and the Islamic Establishment,” the Leader said.
“Under such circumstances, the administration, the parliament, and officials working in different sectors, and all the people are duty-bound to plan and act against the enemy’s objective,” Ayatollah Khamenei stressed.
The Leader further hailed the Iranian youths’ relentless efforts to uphold Islam, saying, “With the grace of God, these youths will bring every enemy, including the US and the Zionist regime (of Israel), to their knees.”
There are numerous young people who are highly motivated and prepared to defend the country, Ayatollah Khamenei said, expressing confidence that the youths’ motivation will salvage the country.
Back in March, the Leader named the new Persian year “Year of Resistance Economy: Action and Implementation.”
Thereafter, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said his administration would make every effort to carry out the policies of Resistance Economy.
In 2014, Ayatollah Khamenei had sent a proclamation to heads of Iran’s branches of power and outlined general policies to boost the country’s economy and lower its vulnerabilities under a grand plan, dubbed Resistance Economy.
