Supreme Leader meeting with members of the Assembly of Experts

Monday, 11 March 2013

  • Conditions today are much more difficult and complex than during the Iran-Iraq War – We must avoid short-term and temporary perspectives and continue to advance, firm in our faith in Islam and reliance on citizens. One of the roles of religious scholars is to maintain and reinforce the spirit and optimism among citizens, especially the young.
  • The nuclear issue is one of challenges faced by the Islamic regime – In the last conference in Kazakhstan, the West did nothing important that could be interpreted as being of benefit to Iran. They only admitted a small part of the Iranian people’s natural right. In order to determine whether the West was honest in the statements it made in the last meeting, we must wait for the next meeting.
  • Sanctions are another challenge faced by Iran – The nuclear issue is an excuse for sanctions, but the West has a different, long-term goal.
  • The government must alleviate the people’s hardships regarding the high cost of living - I stressed to the officials that they should make a concerted effort to solve this problem, as it can unquestionably be solved. Some of the challenges facing us such as sanctions and ban on importing some merchandise does serve Iran, since a consequence of the sanctions that focus is directed within Iran and its (economic) strength.
