Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi said Wednesday the enemy’s bid to provoke sedition in the country is a result of its fear of the Islamic Republic’s power and progress.
Making the remark in an address to a cabinet meeting, Raeisi called for the further promotion of the Islamic Establishment’s glorious power through providing accurate explanations and creating lasting cultural works to force the enemy into acknowledging it and informing the new generation of its dimensions, IRNA reported.
Commenting on his recent meetings with other countries’ leaders, he said they all have acknowledged that Iran has made great advances in different areas and announced that they need to use the Islamic Republic’s advancements.
Raeisi highlighted the necessity of maintaining, continuing and expanding the country’s power.
On Monday, Raeisi criticized the West for efforts to distort realities of the world through mainstream media.
“Enemies are trying to use media to turn realities upside down and change the place of executioner and martyr,” Raeisi said while meeting the family of Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, who was assassinated in a US drone strike in the Iraqi capital Baghdad in 2020.
"Today, the hegemonic system, which relies on its media empire, is trying to change the definition of terrorism and pass itself as the hero of the fight against terrorism," Raeisi added, according to Press TV.
He noted that General Soleimani has turned into one of the symbols of the Islamic Republic, saying that's why the enemies bear grudges against the top commander.
Addressing the 77th annual session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York last week, Raeisi called for prosecution of former US president Donald Trump, who ordered the strike on Soleimani, stressing that Iran would pursue the case.
Elsewhere in his Monday remarks, Raeisi noted that in numerous speeches and meetings he had during his recent trip to New York, he emphasized that European countries and the United States are now trying to whitewash the anti-Iran terrorist group Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), which has the blood of more than 17,000 innocent Iranian people on its hands.
He said the US and Europe have removed the MKO from the list of terrorist groups and are even supporting them.
