Iran's Supreme Leader calls for encouraging national products
Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei on Tuesday called on Iranian officials to support national production and build culture in that direction, IRNA reported.
Addressing a group of officials from three branches of government, Ayatollah Khamenei said the cultural organizations should build culture to encourage consuming home-made products.
The Supreme Leader said the new year should mark the beginning of endeavors, intellect, hope and motivation to expedite the progressive movement and take serious steps towards national production.
Ayatollah Khamenei said the current year would be full of blessing for officials if they move in line with guidance of Islam.
The Leader said that the arrogant powers have attempted to pile up economic pressure on Iran and that despite wide-scale efforts, the officials and youth of the country would use all domestic facilities and potentials to drive the arrogant powers to helplessness.
The Supreme Leader said that the most evident reason for futility of the arrogant powers attempts is the inefficiency of more than 30 years of economic sanctions and pressures on the Islamic Republic of Iran and the progress Iran has made in economy, science and technology.
