US, allies yet to find correct understanding of Islamic Revolution
IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency
Tehran, May 23, IRNA -- Speaker of the Iranian Parliament (Majlis) Ali Larijani said Sunday that the US and its allies have failed to find a deep and correct understanding of the Islamic Revolution in Iran.
He made the remarks in his address to the Majlis Sunday open session to mark the 28th anniversary of the liberation of Khorramshahr city in Khuzestan province southwest of Iran by the Iranian forces on May 24, 1982.
The port city had been captured by Iraqis on October 26, 1980.
It was retaken by Iranian forces during an operation called the Operation of Beit ol-Moqaddas.
The successful retaking of the city was perceived as a turning point in the war and is celebrated by Iranians each year.
Lack of a correct understanding from Iran’s Islamic Revolution was behind the “confused attitude” of the US and its allies in dealing with Iranians, Larijani said.
He stressed that the reason of Iranians’ victory in every war field “is their convergence as well as national and Islamic solidarity.”
Urging the need for further development of the cities damaged by the war, the speaker called on the Majlis special commissions to set specific plans for Khorramshahr’s development.
