Imam Khamenei: Other Motives behind Sanctions on Iran
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said that there are other motives behind sanctions imposed on the Islamic Republic, stressing that such sanctions have nothing to do with nothing to do with Tehran’s nuclear activities or human rights record.
During a meeting with a group of university professors and researchers in Tehran, Imam Khamenei said those who have imposed sanctions on Iran are themselves the ones who foster terrorism and commit human rights violations, IRNA news agency reported.
The Leader went on to say that the sanctions against Iran have been imposed because the Islamic Republic has emerged as a nation, a movement and an identity guided by principles against the hegemonic system.
“Their objective is to prevent Iran from reaching a prominent civilization status,” Imam Khamenei added.
Meanwhile, his eminence highlighted the special role of professors in educating a generation of self-reliable, confident and diligent youths who will further move Iran toward progress.
