Iran's Presidential Chief of Staff Mahmoud Vaezi pointed out that twenty-five years after that black day, the Iranians organized a revolution that closed the way to any foreign interference in the affairs of the country and the fate of the people.

Despite the passage of years, the Iranian nation is loyal to the same pact, and the independence and denial of foreign domination is the national pact of all Iranians, and this is a fact that many will sooner or later be forced to accept.     207/216
