Tehran(IP)- The Leader of the Islamic Revolution called the conquest of Khorramshahr a symbol of national salvation and the transformation of bitter equations into sweet equations and emphasized that today's issues of the country, like that era, can be solved with struggle and devotion.

Iran PressIran News: The Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, received the members of the Parliament on Wednesday morning in Imam Khomeini's Husseiniyah.

Remembering the excellent operation of Beit-ol-Moqaddas and success in liberating Khorramshahr city during the Iran-Iraq war on May 24, 1982, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution said: The conquest of Khorramshahr was a change from a bitter equation to a sweet equation. The Iranian nation was liberated. Many people may not have known much about the state of war, but those who did know were constantly living in worry, bitterness, and hardship.

"What was the cause of this national salvation? What was the factor in the conquest of Khorramshahr, and what was behind those events? Jihad, self-sacrifice, determination, initiative, pursuing innovative actions and ways." The Leader of the Islamic Revolution pointed out.

He also stated: Now, I want to say that this was not specific to that juncture and that incident, and in all the various events in the country that you face, such as internal and external issues, hardware issues, and software issues, can be overcome with the help of these few factors: a struggle for God and Jihadi action, devotion vis-a-vis God, determination, initiative and the like.

Iran's Parliament was formed with the slogans of the Revolution

"We called revolutionary Parliament! Some did not like it. Well, we told the truth, now some people like it, some people do not like it, there is no problem; the truth was that this Parliament was formed with the slogans of the Revolution. People looked and chose among candidates whose actions, orientation, slogan, words were the word of Revolution." Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei recalled. 

Moreover, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution emphasized that the slogans of the Revolution were in the interest of the country, unlike those who wanted to pretend that the Revolution was a problem for the country; on the contrary, the Revolution and revolutionary slogans and revolutionary ideals - which of course have not yet reached the models yet- paying attention to these ideas and moving towards these ideals is the cure for the country's pains; It's not a problem, it's a solution.

To remain revolutionary much more difficult than to be revolutionary

"Of course, a fundamental point is to remain revolutionary. Dear brothers! Dear sisters! there were people who, for example, in 1979, when I was a member of the Revolutionary Council, they used to say serious words in support of the Revolution that we were surprised that they are so revolutionary, but later they returned from the path of the Revolution and did not remain revolutionary. The same people could not continue the path with that thinking. It is much more difficult to remain revolutionary than to be revolutionary and have a revolutionary tendency." He noted.

The Leader considered the Parliament as one of the main pillars of the country's management and, referring to the difficulties and complexities of managing countries in the current dangerous international situation, called on all branches of government and institutions to understand the importance of their position and sincere cooperation with each other and noted, "Adequate recognition of abilities and vulnerabilities is one of the most important issues because the enemy has pinned its hopes to our mistakes rather than relying on his abilities."

"The factors of national salvation that were achieved with the conquest of Khorramshahr are: jihadi action, self-sacrifice, determination, initiative, long-term view of goals and ideals, and above all devotion and trust in God."

The Leader considered these factors and the general rule as the saving version in all matters and at all times and emphasized: "The basis of this saving rule is the inviolable promise of God in the Qur'an to bring victory to individuals and societies that adhere to these factors and God will not waste the act and the struggles of members of this society.

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution said: "Sacrifice means not being caught in the clutches of humble desires, and many problems of individuals and societies begin with giving in to humble desires." Ayatollah Khamenei then referred to the parliament and emphasized that the Islamic Consultative Assembly is one of the main pillars of the country's management and has an important position, noting that members of parliament from different cities and even from sparsely populated cities should have such a view to the position of the parliament and realize the difficulty and complexity of managing the country.

Managing a country with the position of Iran is an important task

Referring to the size, population, geography, history, and diverse climate of Iran, the Leader stressed: "Managing a country with the position of Iran is an important task and, given the current special conditions of the world, is naturally difficult and complex." The Leader of the Islamic Revolution pointed out that of course, in today's world, management has become difficult for all countries.

Explaining the reasons for the special situation in the world, Ayatollah Khamenei said: "The hostile rivalries of the powers and the threats of the nuclear powers against each other, the increasing military movements and threats and the war near Europe as one of the most war-torn regions in the world, the worldwide outbreak of a disease and food threats around the world are all factors that make the current world special, and in such a situation, the management of countries has become more difficult and complicated."

Ayatollah Khamenei pointed out: "In addition to the conditions that prevail in all countries, Iran is constantly challenged by world powers in various dimensions due to the presentation of a new model, which is religious democracy, which has disrupted the regulatory table of the domination system."

The Islamic Republic has shielded itself against all hostilities

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution underscored that the Islamic Republic has shielded itself against all hostilities and is progressing and succeeding, adding: "MPs, the government, the judiciary, and other bodies should all know in what great and important management are involved and to increase their care according to this position."

Ayatollah Khamenei elsewhere highlighted: "We must recognize both the capabilities and the vulnerabilities and be careful not to make mistakes, because the enemy pinned hopes on our mistakes more than he hopes for his abilities." Ayatollah Khamenei called staying a revolutionary more important than being a revolutionary and noted: Some people in the first years of the revolution were very passionate and in a sense super-revolutionary, but they did not have the stamina to stay on this path and could not stay on the path.
