Speaking on Saturday in a meeting with thousands of people from the holy city of Qom, Ayatollah Khamenei referred to the recent wave of attacks against Iran’s Judiciary, and said the enemy “attacks the apparatuses that typify the country’s national authority.”
“What would frustrate the enemy in its goals is for us to have a powerful judicial branch and a courageous and strategist government. These [qualities] should be reinforced.”
Elsewhere in his comments, Ayatollah Khamenei warned against schemes at work in British circles against the Islamic Republic and the entire region and said partitioning regional countries are among such plots.
“They say the era of a unified Iraq, a unified Syria, a unified Libya and a unified Yemen is over, but do not proceed to name Iran because they are afraid of Iran’s public opinion.”
By introducing bans, the enemy seeks to afflict people with economic woes, and thus separate the nation from the Islamic establishment, the Leader said, adding that even when the enemies lift the sanctions on paper, they make sure their afflictions will stay, Press TV reported.
Ayatollah Khamenei further described “a powerful and resistant” economy as “the antidote” to the economic pressure against the country.
After consulting with the Expediency Council, Ayatollah Khamenei announced in February 2014 the general policies of the economic approach. Resistant Economy is a long-term policy aimed at localizing development theories, shaping ones that are predicated on the Islamic economic model, and thus differ from those of the world’s predominant economic theories, namely liberalism and socialism.
