May 27, 2016

TEHRAN - Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi, a senior military advisor to Leader of the Islamic Revolution, said on Friday that success in implementing the resistance economy depends on national determination, the government’s help to the people, and also the people’s help to the government.

Safavi said, “Through resistance economy we can make use of our own innovation and domestic capacities.”

He called on the next Majlis to adopt legislations in line with resistance economy. “The new Majlis which will start its work tomorrow can be influential in resistance economy and the six (development) plan.”

Addressing a congregation of worshippers in Tehran, Safavi said, “Resistance and victory during the eight years of Sacred Defense [1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war] can be a document and guide for the resistance economy.”

The former IRGC chief also said the Islamic Revolution and the Sacred Defense present role models to the Islamic world on how to govern and resist against hegemonic powers.

He added the U.S., Israel and their allies are not able to stall the growing influence of Imam Khomeini and the Supreme Leader’s political thoughts.

He added the U.S., the Zionist regime of Israel and their allies in the Middle East region have hatched plots against the Islamic revolution but they have failed.
