IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Jan 20, IRNA -- Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei says young elite martyrs are source of honor for the country as their martyrdom in the path of God would pave the ground for progress of Islam.

Talking to the bereaved families of nuclear scientists, Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan and Dariush Rezaie, who were martyred recently, Ayatollah Khamenei said late Thursday that the dear martyrs are worth to be honored for two reasons: Firstly, their scientific and research activities and their competence in handling sensitive and important works and secondly, the divine and spiritual characteristic of the young individuals, that is the reason for their martyrdom.

The Supreme Leader went on to say that with victory of Islamic Revolution, enemies started to level big accusations against the Islamic Revolution, claiming the way to scientific progress of the country is blocked, while Iranian youth through their endeavors proved vice-versa.
