Multitude of threats prove extent of Iran might: Leader

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the multitude of threats against Iran demonstrates the country’s strength and influence.

“If Iran was not influential and powerful, the ill-wishers of the Iranian nation would not have gone through water and fire in haste [to harm the country],” Ayatollah Khamenei said in a meeting with Iranian military commanders on Wednesday.

Referring to the experience of the war imposed on Iran by Iraq as unique, the Leader said, “During those eight years, in fact all world powers including the West and the East and countries dependent on them lined-up against Iran and provided the Iraqi Baathist regime with the most advanced equipment.”

The Western countries that advocate human rights and democracy even provided Iraq with chemical weapons in order to bring the Islamic establishment and the Iranian people to their knees, Ayatollah Khamenei added.

“But despite all such efforts and endorsements, [global] powers could not bring Iran to its knees.”

By having valuable experiences such as the Islamic Revolution and the Sacred Defense, the Iranian nation will definitely pass the current junction with dignity, the Leader said.
