Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the proper implementation of resistance economy can provide for the needs of Iran as well as promote its dignity.
“Resistance economy, if implemented in the real sense of the word, can cater for both national dignity and the requirements of the country because it relies on internal capacities,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in a meeting with a group of university professors and academicians on Saturday.
“The issue that I would like to emphasize is the pace of [Iran's] scientific growth. Today, we need to speed up our scientific growth," the Leader said.
"We have been kept behind at least 60-70 years by traitorous or ignorant governments. If we want to advance, we shouldn’t move forward with the speed of those who are ahead [of us],” Ayatollah Khamenei added.
