IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Oct 10, IRNA -- Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said on Wednesday that Iranian nation will overcome impacts of sanctions as they did in the case of other major problems the western governments created for Iranians so far.

The Supreme Leader said in Bojnourd that the sanctions have nothing to do with Iranian nuclear program and the enemies have targeted Iranian nation with sanctions for political agenda.

"Iran has been subject to sanctions in all fields from the early days of victory of the Islamic Revolution of Iran, but, achieved progress to the dismay of the enemies."

The Supreme Leader said that sanctions have targeted life of ordinary people adding that the Islamic Republic of Iran will overcome the difficulties created for the people by the sanctions.

The Supreme Leader made it clear that the western governments have made the national nuclear program an excuse for escalating hostility with Iranian nation pursuing the sanctions to damage Iranian economy.

“Today enemies in their radios and their agents inside Iran try to magnify sanctions. Sanctions are not related to today or yesterday. Since early days of victory of the Islamic Revolution, sanctions have been in effect.”

Ayatollah Khamenei said that enemies are hostile to Iranian nation for their spirit of independence and refusal to give up .

"Such spirit of Iranian nation is due to Islam and Quran, It makes enemies angry and that’s the reason they dislike Islam and blaspheme Holy Prophet. Enemies of Iranian nation do know that when they attack Iran, the spirit of independence in the country will be so high that they will not bow to them.

“Now they claim that if Iranian nation ignores its nuclear energy, the sanctions will be lifted; they are telling a lie. They make decisions against Iranian nation due to their long-cherished hostility; The sanctions they impose are considered by all the wise people and fair individuals in the world as illogical. In fact that’s a brutal act and war on a nation. But in the war they will be defeated by the Iranian nation under God’s grace.”
