The Leader made the remarks during a meeting with President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the members of the Expediency Council who were appointed or reappointed for a new five-year term in a decree issued on March 14.
Iran is on the path of progress and the Expediency Council should help the Islamic system maintain momentum through the adoption of a positive attitude toward issues, Ayatollah Khamenei stated.
He also noted that the council shoulders great responsibilities and thanked Expediency Council Chairman Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani and the members who served during the previous term of the council for their efforts.
Prior to the Leader’s address, Rafsanjani delivered a speech in which he said the fact that Iranian calendar year 1391 (started March 20) has been called the year of national production will help the country make considerable achievements if the necessary measures are taken.
