Iranian President Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi said the enemy has always sought to distort the identity the country’s universities have developed following the victory of 1979 Islamic Revolution, calling on the nation to foil the wicked plot as a collective duty.

Making the remarks in an address to a Wednesday cabinet session, Raeisi added in his Tuesday night meeting with a number of Iranian students, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei underlined the importance and status of science and culture, with universities having a pivotal role in this regard, reported.

He urged all sectors of the Iranian government to make efforts to implement the Leader’s directives.

The president described preserving the Iranian universities’ scientific, religious and revolutionary identity as the most important concern voiced by Ayatollah Khamenei in the meeting, saying giving hope to students was among the Leader’s other concerns.

Raeisi added employment is among the problems Iranian students face after graduation, urging the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology and Ministry of Industry, Mine and Trade to draw up plans for the resolution of the issue.

He stressed that the administration is duty-bound to implement the Leader’s guidelines.

Raeisi said universities are the government’s think tank, calling on Iranian professors and students to work out solutions for the country’s important problems such as addressing the water shortage, preventing goods smuggling, developing technology-based firms and minimizing exports of raw materials.

In his Tuesday remarks, Ayatollah Khamenei called on Iranian students to be the centers of “injecting hope” into the society.

The Leader described the university as the most important issue of the Islamic Revolution, saying today, Iran takes pride in its universities.

Ayatollah Khamenei urged the country’s youths, through thinking, producing ideas, focusing deeply on the Islamic Republic’s main issues, and refraining from inaction and disappointment, to demand officials to promote the Islamic Revolution’s causes and do real and serious work.

The Leader called for closer connection between Iranian university students and officials, blaming the absence of such contacts for a large number of the academic sector’s problems.
