The representative of the people of Bushehr in the Assembly of Experts said this eight-year long war created a symbol of spiritual power for the Islamic Republic of Iran as the nation’s defense was strengthened throughout the eight years of war against the aggressive Ba’athist regime in Iraq, reported Rasa.
“The name of this nation became renowned in the world for its perseverance and resistance,” the Iranian cleric noted.
He said many Muslim nations are familiar with our nation’s thoughts and beliefs and have established relations with us for this reason and have also praised the Iranian nation’s great thought, actions and resistance.
Ayatollah Hoseyni-Bushehri stressed that during the Iran-Iraq War not even an inch of Iranian territory was lost to the enemies and Iran’s victory was due to the country’s adherence to the words of the late Imam Khomeini and the unity and communion among the Iranian people.
“Through trust in God Almighty, the people were present on the battlefields and achieved for victory for their country,” he said.
His Eminence referred to the recent news that from 2019 to 2028, Israel will receive $3.3 billion per year of military aid from the United States but stressed that Israel will not feel even a moment of peace.
“Today, security and development are two sides of the same coin but without security, progress cannot be achieved and we must be careful not to make statements which can be abused by the enemies and not move on the enemies’ playing field,” Ayatollah Hoseyni-Bushehri said.
The member of the Supreme Council of Islamic Seminaries emphasized that any statement that may weaken the country’s defensive and military capabilities will have results and consequences for the security of the country.
He added that the media must exploit the vast treasure of the Sacred Defense is good as Iran’s young generation must be properly introduced to the teachings of this era.
