The Leader of the Islamic Revolution His Eminence Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei said on Sunday that "The Iranian nation is determined to reach its marked point through [strong] determination and resolve," noting that foreign powers will not be able to weaken this resolve.
In a meeting with researchers, specialists and innovators on Sunday, Ayatollah Khamenei added that Iran is constantly progressing and that there is no undefeatable obstacle or deadlock on the way of its march ahead.
"The Iranian nation is in the middle of the scene and problems and pressures fall short of [influencing] decision, resolve and ideals of this nation," Imam Khamenei said.
Imam Khamenei noted that "The economy of resistance is not a slogan, but a reality which should be realized," iterating that taking it seriously is one of the main ways of passing the current fateful juncture.
"One of the best manifestations and most effective components of the economy of resistance is knowledge-based companies, which can make the economy of resistance more sustainable," Ayatollah Khamenei said.
He added that true economic growth fulcrums on the generation of wealth through science and knowledge.
"If knowledge-based companies are taken seriously and their qualitative and quantitative growth is supported, the country will achieve true prosperity by generating wealth through [promotion of] science," His Eminence concluded.
