Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei underlined on Thursday that he believes that a better future is waiting for Iran and the Iranian nation.
"There is a youthful, hardworking and vibrant movement in the country which has consolidated my belief in a better future for Iran more than ever," Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing a meeting with the Chairman and members of the Assembly of Experts in Tehran on Thursday.
The supreme Leader also said that the faith and piety of the vast majority of people and the youth have helped the country to address problems and stand against the US and Zionist invasions.
"The country's resistance and accomplishments in confronting the major political, financial, military, security and cultural invasion by the US and Zionism is due to the faith and piety of the vast majority of people and the youth," he underscored.
In relevant remarks last Saturday, Ayatollah Khamenei downplayed the western states' threats of imposing new sanctions against Iran as ineffective.
"Of course, they (the enemies) will embark on harassments, including economic sanctions and propaganda, but these harassments will not stop the Iranian nation's great move," Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing a large number of young Iranian people in Tehran.
He warned of enemies' attempts to make the youth weary of Islam and Islamic Revolution and pave the ground for the US control over all affairs, but meantime, said, "Now we have a generation whose faith, talent, flourishing and might is more than the first generation (after the Islamic Revolution) and this generation is more prepared than the previous generations to keep the enemies back."
"The enemy can do no damn thing against the Iranian nation, similar to the past 40 years," Ayatollah Khamenei said.
Iranian officials have always underlined ineffectiveness of sanctions against the country, stressing Tehran's firm stand to continue progress in different fields.
