On June 4, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei adressed people in the Mausoleum of Ruhollah Khomeini.
He said that all measures taken by opponents of Iran are the result of their desperation and confusion.
“We are well aware of the enemy’s plot and disclose it to people,” he said, mentioning economic, psychological and practical pressures as three major components of the plot against the Iranian nation.
He said that the measures taken again the Iranian nation may slow down the forward march of the nation, but cannot stop its progress.
Khamenei also warned of Iran’s harsh response if attacked by its enemies and said that the country’s ballistic missile program is essential for its defense.
“Tehran will attack ten times more if attacked by our enemies… Our enemies don’t want an independent Iran in the region… We will continue our support to oppressed nations… our enemies have engaged in economic and psychological warfare against us and the new American sanctions are part of it,” Khamenei said in during the speech.
He described attempts by the US-led bloc to impose restrictions on the Iranian missile program as a dream, which will never become real.
