He noted: "The message of the Iranian nation was a message of insistence on the values of the glorious Islamic Revolution. The Iranian nation's message was a message to the continuation of the path of Ayatollah Khomeini and martyrs, especially that of martyr Soleimani. The Iranian people made the message with their own presence on the foundations of the Islamic Revolution and allegiance to the message of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, the message to the people's government, and to all administrators and officials who will be the servant of the people in the name of the administration."
