TEHRAN: Irans Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei Wednesday denounced a recent campaign against Hezbollah, praising theArab resistance movement as a source of pride for Muslims.
The leader’s remarks on Wednesday came after the Arab Parliament followed the Arab League and the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council in designing Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.
Lets suppose a corrupt, sycophantic, hollow regime condemns Hezbollah in a statement with money and petrodollars; to hell with it! How much does it matter?” Ayatollah Khamenei told a group of students in Tehran.
Hezbollah and its youths are shining as the Sun and are a source of honor for the world of Islam, Ayatollah Khamenei added.
He also warned against any submission to new Western demands about Irans missile defense program and other technologies.
If we show any leniency toward them, they will begin playing games with biotech, nanotech and scientific issues and make problems, Ayatollah Khamenei told a group of students in Tehran Wednesday.
Iran reached a nuclear agreement in July to have a raft of sanctions lifted but the country has come under new pressures from the US and its allies over its missile defense program since then.
“One of the most basic motivations which have prompted arrogant powers to square up against us is that a country, without relying on any power, has managed to reach the extraordinarily sensitive nuclear stage,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
