Imam Khomeini never felt weak, nor showed weakness in the face of enemies: Leader

Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks in a ceremony held at the Imam Khomeini Mausoleum in south Tehran on Monday to commemorate the 29th anniversary of the passing away of the founder of the Islamic Republic.

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says Imam never felt weak, nor showed weakness in the face of enemies, but always stood against them with power.

The leader added that when dealing with enemies’ plots, Imam Khomeini never gave in to pure sentiments, but made his moves through well-calculated plans.

All measures taken by enemies against the Islamic Republic are the result of their desperation and confusion in the face of the Islamic establishment, Ayatollah Khamenei stated.

Enemy’s measures against the Islamic Republic show how desperate they are in their faceoff with Iran rather than being a sign of their power, the leader stressed.

The Leader noted that the measures taken by enemies of the Iranian nation may slow down the forward march of the nation, but cannot stop its progress.

Ayatollah Khamenei further noted that in dealing with enemies, the Islamic Republic of Iran give priority to domestic potentialities and capabilities of the nation and has absolutely no trust in the enemy.

"We are well aware of the enemy's plot and disclose it to people," the Leader said, mentioning economic, psychological and practical pressures as three major components of enemy's plot against the Iranian nation.

The main goal they seek through economic pressure and sanctions is not just to mount pressure on the Iranian government, but is to make the Iranian nation disillusioned with the Islamic establishment, the Leader said, adding that with God's assistance and through efforts made by officials and people, the enemy will never achieve this goal.

Ayatollah Khamenei stated that one of the psychological measures taken by enemies against the Iranian nation is to turn its strengths into challenges in order to strip the nation of those strengths.

The Leader added that when Iran needed enriched uranium for medical purposes, enemies put all kinds of obstacles on the way of the nation to prevent it from achieving nuclear technology. However, the Leader said, Iranian youths managed to master this technology despite enemies’ efforts.

Referring to Iran's support for oppressed people of the world, especially the people of Palestine, Ayatollah Khamenei stressed that supporting the oppressed is a source of credit for Iran in the world and the country will continue to back oppressed nations and resistance forces in region and support integrity of regional countries.

As for enemies’ practical pressures on Iran, the Leader added that the main step taken by enemies in this regard is to stoke unrest by exploiting peaceful protests and gatherings that people may hold to give voice to their demands, stressing that Iranian people must remain vigilant in the face of enemies.
