President Rayeesi: US Declining as New Order Emerges
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian President Seyed Ebrahim Rayeesi underlined that a new world order in favor of the Resistance Front is emerging, and said that Iran will be a major player in this new order as the power of the United States continues to wane.
President Rayeesi made the remarks on Saturday while addressing a ceremony held to commemorate the 34th demise anniversary of the founder of the Islamic Republic, late Imam Khomeini.
He said Imam Khomeini’s ideas led to a major development in the global political arena, and his revolution changed all the political equations and gave birth to new ones and a new world order.
“All the indexes of the United States’ unilateralism show that its power is in decline and emerging powers, including regional organizations, are on the rise across the globe, especially in Asia. There is no doubt that the Islamic Revolution is a major player in this new order, which is taking shape in favor of the resistance front,” the Iranian president added.
He said those who claim to be powerful are now admitting to the increasing power of the Islamic Republic of Iran and our power in the region is undeniable, and no equation can take shape except with Iran playing a role in it.
He added that “resistance” is now among prominent political terms in the world and the key to resistance is to become strong in the face of the enemies, not to submit to them.
“The word ‘resistance’ had no place in the political jargon [of the world], but today ‘resistance’ and ‘steadfastness’ are among prominent political terms,” Raeisi noted.
He added that the key to resistance is that "the path [to overcoming problems] does not go through submission to the enemy, but it requires [us] to appear strong against the enemy, because only a strong society can resist conspiracies and all kinds of sedition".
“We have announced time and again that we are ready to establish relations with countries that have indicated their willingness to have relations with Iran. However, we will resist against those countries that may want to confront us,” President Rayeesi added.
He pointed out that Sureme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has clearly analyzed the root cause of hostilities against the Islamic Republic, saying the enemies conspire against Iran because it is a progressive country.
Noting that the spokesperson of the White House has admitted that the so-called maximum pressure policy against Iran has miserably failed, Rayeesi said, "It was you people, who thwarted and defeated the sanctions" that were imposed on the country by the US and its allies.
The Iranian president then assured the nation that the hybrid and media war launched against the Islamic Republic by its enemies will also fail and prove futile, as the Iranian nation continues to tread the trail that has been blazed by its martyrs.
In a relevant development earlier, Ayatollah Khamenei described the founder of the Islamic Republic, late Imam Khomeini, as an undeniable honor and personality of the Muslim world, and said that he was someone who not only brought changes to Iran, but also to the region and the entire world.
Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks during his speech at a ceremony held to commemorate the 34th demise anniversary of late Imam Khomeini at his Mausoleum in Southern Tehran on Sunday, where tens of thousands were taking part.
At the start of his speech, the Supreme Leader described the founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini as a role model in rising up for justice and initiating a revolution.
Ayatollah Khamenei then referred to the noble characteristic of Imam Khomeini, and said he brought changes to Iran, Islam, and to the world.
Ayatollah Khamenei clarified that in Iran, the late Imam broke the imperial political structure and replaced it with a democracy; in Islam, the issue of Palestine became the first issue of the Islamic world; and at the world level, Imam revived the conditions for paying attention to spirituality even in non-Muslim countries.
Stressing the need for preserving the three developments founded by Imam Khomeini, Ayatollah Khamenei emphasized that those changes have still stubborn enemies that try to stop them.
Referring to the animosity of Global Arrogance (Major Western powers) towards the Iranian nation, the Supreme Leader stressed that the enemies want to pull Iran back to the pre-revolution era, when the Pahlavi regime was dependent on them.
Ayatollah Khamenei also urged the nation for keeping faith and hope in order to preserve national independence and national interests.
Referring to last year's West-provoked riots in Iran, Ayatollah Khamenei noted that the planning of last fall's riots was done in the think tanks at the Western countries.
He added that the riots were instigated and sponsored by the Western security agencies.
The Supreme Leader went on to say that the enemies planned last year's riots with the wishful thinking that the Islamic Republic of Iran would be defeated but they again failed to know the reality about Iranian nation.
Ayatollah Khamenei added that the enemies are seeking to disappoint the Iranian youths with the government by highlighting the country's problems and and instead by underestimating the achievements in the country.
He pointed to the great achievements in the field of technology in Iran, as an instance and stressed that there are various and promising developments in the country that signal a bright future.
Ayatollah Khamenei also urged the officials and organizations to strengthen the faith and hope among the Iranian nation.
At the end of his speech, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution urged for a massive turnout to the polling stations at parliamentary elections slated to be held at the end of this year of 1402 in the Iranian calendar to disappoint the enemies once again.
Iranians and Muslims around the world are commemorating the 34th anniversary of the demise of the late founder of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Khomeini (RA).
The Demise of Imam Khomeini is a national holiday in Iran which falls on June 4th each year.
After eleven days in a hospital for an operation to stop internal bleeding, Imam Khomeini died of cancer on Saturday, June 3, 1989, at the age of 89. Many Iranians mourned Imam Khomeini's death and poured out into the cities and streets after his passing was announced 34 years ago. More than 10 million people from across the country attended Imam Khomeini’s funeral to form one of the largest-ever funerals in the world.
Following Imam Khomeini’s demise, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei came to be selected on June 4, 1989, by the Assembly of Experts to be his successor, in accordance with the Constitution.
