He made the remark talking to reporters at the mausoleum of the Father of the Islamic Revolution where he, along with his cabinet ministers, paid tribute to the late Imam Khomeini on the second day of the annual ‘Ten-Day Dawn’ celebrations marking the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
President Ahmadinejad stressed that the government, along with the people, will continue to resist all pressures.
He added that national solidarity, resistance, serving people, meeting people’s needs, development of country, and defending justice are among principles established by the late Imam.
Resistance against bullying powers and extremists as well as defending oppressed nations of the world are also among Imam’s aspirations, the president noted.
