He made the remarks in a meeting with thousands of people from the city of Najafabad at the Imam Khomeini Mosque downtown Tehran on Wednesday morning.

When enemy witness the fact that, 37 years of pressures, oppressive sanctions and hostile propaganda have not prevented people to pledge their allegiance to the Islamic system, grandeur of revolution will shiver down its spine, Ayatollah Khamenei said.
