TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- Tehran’s Interim Friday Prayers leader Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati said here on Friday that massive participation of the Iranians in elections proved their loyalty to Islam, the Supreme Leader and the Islamic Republic.
Addressing a large and fervent congregation of the public on Tehran University Campus, Jannati praised the Iranian nation for its wide participation in the elections, and said that the people provided an excellent response to the invitation of the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei and other officials and proved their loyalty to Islam, the leader and the Islamic Republic through their massive participation in the elections.
Addressing the West, he stressed, “If you intend to adopt a resolution against our country, you must know that the Iranian people will not yield to you as they have always resisted conspiracies and defused plots powerfully.”
The Ayatollah also underlined that Iranians have uttered their words in the elections, and continued, “Now if you are wise, you will listen to the words of our nation at the negotiating table, and stop denying the Iranians’ rights and interests as they will serve your interests as well.”
Noting the issue of Lebanon, the senior cleric mentioned that the future of Lebanon will be bright, and expressed the hope that Lebanese Hezbollah would defuse the enemies’ plots.
He also praised the Lebanese Hezbollah leader Seyed Hassan Nasrallah for all his efforts, and described him as the most popular figure in the world, which he said is a result of Nasrallah’s opposition to the US and the Zionist regime.
