Tehran (IP) - Iran's President says the Islamic Revolution is not just a mere occasion being commemorated, but a discourse emerged in the world by its two leaders.

Raisi said what the world is witnessing in Iran today is that the Islamic Revolution is commemorated not just as a historical event but rather as an emerging discourse in the world, the flag bearers of which are the late Imam Khomeini and now Ayatollah Khamenei. 

He recalled that the enemies of Iran improvised numerous problems for Iran but thanks to its vigilant people, the country has always overcome the obstacles. 

Despite the enemies' attempts, the Islamic Republic of Iran went forward to accomplish more in freedom and independence and would recognize no obstacle in the path.

Raisi called Iran the most independent country in the world with its message 'Independence, Freedom, Islamic Republic', and noted that today the Islamic Revolution declares in its 45 that it would receive orders from neither the East nor the West. 

He said Iran is independent for it recognizes what is due and enjoys the power to act on its own, and that those days passed when the world's powers made decisions in place of the Iranian nation.
