Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei praised the Iranian nation for their resistance against enemies, and said Iran has stood up to the arrogant and colonialist powers alone and smashed their will.
"The Islamic Revolution granted honor to the nation and the country's officials and due to the very same honor and self-esteem, Iran has stood up against the will of the biggest powers alone and shattered their resolve," Ayatollah Khamenei said addressing a meeting with the Iranian Navy commanders and officials on the occasion of the national Navy Day.
"At the time of the Qajar and specially the Pahlavi dynasties, the country's officials were too weak," he said, and cautioned "when a nation feels weak against an enemy, it cannot do anything".
"But the Islamic Revolution gifted honor to Iran and everyone should appreciate this honor," Khamenei said.
Also during the meeting, the Leader praised the "progressive" and "very positive" trend of the Iranian Navy's movement in the post-revolution era.
