TEHRAN – Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei called on the Iranian youth to contribute more to the country’s scientific progress.

“Every effort you (the Iranian youth) make to gain more knowledge, would be a step towards restoration of spiritual and worldly glory of your country which once was the flag bearer of knowledge and innovation in the world,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in a message to the 43rd annual meeting of the Union of the Students’ Islamic Associations in Europe.
“The generation of the (Islamic) Revolution can make up for the years of dependence (on the West) which caused Iran to fall behind the world,” he stated
