Leader: Iran's missile power none of enemies' business
Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei blasted certain so-called world powers which oppose Iran's missile power, and stressed once again that Tehran would not allow others to interfere in its missile and defense programs.
"This issue is none of your (enemies') business. You (the enemies) want the Iranian nation not to have missiles and other defensive possibilities so that you bully it," Ayatollah Khamenei said in Tehran on Sunday, addressing a large number of Iranian people from the northeastern province of East Azarbaijan.
He underlined that production and modernization of all the tools and equipment needed by the country today and tomorrow should be prioritized, and said, "Without even a single moment of doubt, the country should move towards anything that it needs to defend itself even if the world opposes."
"Of course, we have placed a religious ban on things like nuclear bombs and WMDs but we powerfully pursue any (other) things that we need," Ayatollah Khamenei said.
"We are aware of the enemies' open and secret threats, words and plots but we stress without any moment of doubt that the Islamic Republic which relies on people will become more powerful day by day," the Leader underlined.
Ayatollah Khamenei also recited a sentence by the late founder of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Khomeini, and said, "The US can do no damn thing."
