Tehran, April 28, IRNA -- Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said on Wednesday that the general principles of the Article 44 of the Iranian Constitution should be fully implemented.
Addressing thousands of laborere on the occasion of “Labor Week’ the Supreme Leader advised officials to closely watch out suspicious activities of those seeking to break.

Attaining all-out development requires collective contribution, perseverance and endeavors of all people from various walksof life, said Ayatollah Khamenei.
Islam regards laborer as the one entity who struggles in the path of God and attach importance to his position while the materialistic world consider laborers as mere instruments, pointed out the Supreme Leader.
Islam attaches importance to the status of laborers, said Ayatollah Khamenei.
Over the past 30 years the enemies have tried to make use of laborers as a political lever to exert pressure on Islamic system but to no avail, said the Supreme Leader.
“By the grace of God we are now witnessing scientific breakthrough in society but we should keep in our mind that we are at the beginning of the road," said Ayatollah Khamenei.
“We are now witnessing remarkable development in various fields such as technical and engineering services, construction of dams and power houses and launching production lines in foreign countries but there are much to do to compensate our backwardness,” said Ayatollah Khamenei.
To attain more successes and development, all should take action to handle the affairs, the Supreme Leader said.
“By relying on its pious and committed youths, the country will powerfully conquer peaks of success and development,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
Iranian scientists have proved their capabilities and despite UN sanctions and by relying on their own expertise they managed to manufacture the second and third generations of centrifuges for peaceful nuclear activities, something that stunned the whole world, said the Supreme Leader.
Talented Iranian youths also scored success in medical sciences, launching of satellites as well as design and manufacture of sophisticated missiles, said the Supreme Leader.
The global arrogance can not witness such remarkable progress made by the Iranian society and that is why they try to mastermind various plots to hinder the country’s development but to no avail, said the Supreme Leader.
