December 16th local time, Iran’s Supreme Leader Khamenei said at an event in memory of senior Revolutionary Guard General Suleimani that he would avenge Suleimani at the appropriate time, while reminding Iranian officials not to trust the enemy’s promises and not to place hope on the enemy for the future of the country.
Khamenei made four suggestions to Iranian officials and people: “development of strength in all fields”, “don’t trust the enemy”, “maintain national unity” and “try to invalidate sanctions”. Khamenei said that Iran should be committed to developing strong in economic, scientific, technological, defense and military fields, otherwise the enemy will not stop greedy ideas and aggressive actions.
At the same time, he pointed out that hostilities against Iran are not unique to the Trump administration, nor did it during the Obama era, and therefore will not end with the end of Trump’s term.
Therefore, he should not trust the enemy’s promises or hope for the future of the country. At the same time, Khamenei stressed that instead of expecting the enemy to lift sanctions, but more importantly, to ineffective them on their own, this does not mean that efforts should not be made to promote the lifting of sanctions.
The lifting of sanctions should have been completed four years ago when the Iran nuclear agreement was signed. Now the sanctions have not been lifted, but have increased.
Meanwhile, in response to the assassination of senior Revolutionary Guard General Suleimani by the United States with drone-launched missiles at the beginning of this year, Khamenei said that the most severe blow to the United States is to defeat its hegemony and expel the United States from the region.
At the same time, Iran will certainly target the commander and perpetrators of the assassination at the appropriate time. Retaliation.
