Leader: Parl. strategic act to counter sanctions prevented bewilderment in nuclear issue
Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the strategic law adopted by the Iranian Parliament in 2020 to counter sanctions saved the country from “bewilderment in nuclear issue”.
In a meeting with lawmakers in Tehran on Wednesday, Ayatollah Khamenei hailed the strategic laws passed by the parliament, including the Strategic Action Plan to Counter Sanctions.
“The strategic action law saved the country from bewilderment in the nuclear issue,” the Leader said. “This law clearly defined what we should do and we are witnessing its manifestations in the world.”
Under the legislation, which was approved in December 2020, the Iranian administration is required to restrict the inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and accelerate the development of the country’s nuclear program beyond the limits set under the 2015 nuclear agreement. It was adopted in a bid to counter illegal sanctions imposed on Iran by the United States and its Western allies.
Ayatollah Khamenei also congratulated the Iranian nation on the anniversary of the liberation of the city of Khorramshahr in the course of Iraq’s war of aggression against Iran in the 1980s, describing the event as a “miraculous epic.”
The southwestern port city was recaptured during a landmark operation code-named Beit ol-Moqaddas in 1982, putting an end to over 500 days of occupation by forces of the ex-Iraqi dictator’s regime.
The Leader said that the initiatives used in the outstanding operation and the sacrifices made by Iranian martyrs were more important than the great victory, adding that these facts should not fade into oblivion.
