Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei has played the leading role in putting the US in a strategic dead end, Major General Hossein Salami said in an address to a conference of IRGC commanders in Tehran on Saturday.
He said whatever policy the US adopts will get nowhere in the face of Iran.
“The enemy (US) is well aware today that if it imposes sanctions against the Islamic Republic, it will be defeated and if does not sanction the Islamic Republic, it will lose again,” the general stated.
He also underlined that the Islamic Revolution and the resistance axis have the upper hand against the US, the Israeli regime and their allies in the region.
“Today, the US is on the decline more than ever and the enemy has reached the nadir of weakness,” he stated.
In a meeting with the president of Belarus in March, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei stressed the need for the countries sanctioned by the US to cooperate with each other and form a united front to destroy the weapon of sanctions.
“The severe sanctions made Iran aware of its capabilities and internal strengths. During this time, the sanctions provided the ground for many developments in Iran and our country was able to advance outstandingly in various fields including science and technology, medicine and biology, aerospace science, nuclear technology, and nanotechnology,” the Leader stated.
