Tehran’s provisional Friday Prayers leader Hojjatoleslam Kazzem Seddiqi underlined the importance of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei’s Nowruz message, and said that the government should do its best to meet the resistance economy’s objectives.
Addressing a large and fervent congregation of the people on Tehran University campus on Friday, Hojjatoleslam Seddiqi said, “The Supreme Leader has provided us with an opportunity which is the resistance economy.”
Hojjatoleslam Seddiqi’s statements came after Ayatollah Khamenei on March 20 called on people and officials to double efforts to improve economy and turn the threats into opportunities.
“The main issue is that the Iranian nation should be able to do something to bring its vulnerabilities to zero point, and we should have the art of using opportunities and turning threats into opportunities,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in his message on Sunday after the start of the Iranian New Year.
He underlined that improvement of economy is the country’s main priority, and said increasing national production, creating jobs and fighting recession are among the issues which should receive attention in the New Year.
Ayatollah Khamenei described the resistance economy as the remedy to all economic problems and the way to stand against enemies’ threats and create opportunities, and said, “Therefore, what I choose as the slogan of this year is ‘the resistance economy; action and implementation’.”
