Referring to the US sanctions and threats against Iran over the past 40 years, Tehran interim Friday prayers leader went on to stress the fact that such cruel and unfair sanctions had actually led to Iranian nation's independence and self-sufficiency, for example economic and political independence, and  self-sufficiency in defence and military matters. Tehran interim Friday prayers leader added: "It also led to increasing influence and clout of the Islamic Republic within the region."

Emphasizing the fact that over the past four decades, US has always been defeated when confronting the Iranian nation, Hojjatoleslam Sadighi said US propaganda against Iran does not work anymore, it has lost its impact, and anti-US sentiment is growing in the world.

While condemning Bahrain's Al-Khalifa court decree against a senior Bahraini Shi'a cleric, Hojjatoleslam Sadighi went on to describe the episode as a black page in Bahrain's history. He also condemned the silence of the international community against suppression and murder of innocent Yemeni people by Saudi Arabia and its allies. 203/103
