Srinagar: Iran is facing a smear campaign by the propaganda machinery of global arrogance as part of their war of attrition against the Islamic Republic, representative of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei said during his brief visit to Srinagar.
Ayatollah Mehdi Mahdavipur arrived here to attend the fortieth day ceremony of veteran Kashmiri leader Maulana Muhammad Abbas Ansari on Sunday.
“For twenty years after the triumph of Islamic revolution the enemy was urging countries not to supply arms to Iran and twenty years later the enemy is urging countries not to buy weapons from Iran”, Agha Mehdi said underlining the success and progress Iran has made despite crippling sanctions which according to him has 'unnerved the powers who want to dominate the world'.
Talking on the sidelines of the function Agha Mehdi said, Iran has resolutely refused to surrender to the whims of 'global arrogance' and defeated all their designs to become a vassal state of the West. “Western powers are giving vent to their frustrations by resorting to an ongoing smear campaign to spread hopelessness among people within Iran and discredit the image of Islamic republic outside Iran's borders”. Agha Mehdi said the enemy is unnerved by the progress and the march of development of the Islamic Republic and was using proxies and mercenaries to create unrest in Iran. He said unrest has been contained as an overwhelming majority of people stand firm behind the establishment.
Agha Mehdi cited fields of military and science where Iran has achieved phenomenal success despite Western blockade.
Today Iran is self sufficient in its defence needs and countries are making a beeline to procure Iranian made weapons and the list includes superpowers like Russia. Likewise in the field of medical science before revolution Iran was dependent on foreign doctors and today Iran supplies doctors to the world. He said that just from India there are more than a thousand students studying medicine at various Iranian universities.
Talking about relations with India, Agha Mehdi said that there are cordial ties between Iran and India.“Relations between Iran and India are cordial and friendly in the political sphere and relations are growing culturally and economically as well,” he said.
