TEHRAN – Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has said that the United States’ plots against Iran have failed due to the Iranian people’s awareness.
The Leader made the remarks on Wednesday during an address to tens of thousands of people who had gathered at the mausoleum of the late Imam Khomeini, the Founder of the Islamic Republic, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of his death.
“The U.S. plots, including (planning) a military coup, supporting seditionists, and making efforts to incite some segments of society to take to the streets and create division among officials, have failed due to the people’s awareness and faith,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
He went on to say that the United States’ policy toward countries that are not willing to yield to its tyrannical demands is to use all of its means to undermine them.
But taking military action against other countries is not a top priority for the United States anymore due to the losses and damage it suffered after attacking Afghanistan and Iraq, he noted.
Elsewhere in his remarks, the Leader said that the hegemonistic countries are now making a “strategic mistake” because they think that they have been able to quash the Islamic Awakening in the region.
“But the understanding that gave rise to the Islamic Awakening cannot be eradicated, and this phenomenon will spread sooner or later,” he stated.
