Kermanshah (IP) - Iran's judiciary chief said that according to Western thinkers and analysts, the maximum pressure of the West and the United States against the Islamic Republic of Iran has failed.

Iran Press/Iran news: Speaking on Thursday in Kermanshah, western Iran, Sayyed Ebrahim Raisi referred to the enemies' threats and sanctions against Iran, adding: "The maximum pressure of the enemy has been broken, and the United States and the West have reached a deadlock regarding the issue."

The United States has been waging a brutal campaign of economic warfare against Iran, also known as the 'maximum pressure' campaign. This sustained wave of sanctions, even amid the deadly coronavirus pandemic, is equal to economic terrorism.

Referring to the situation in the West Asian region, Raisi stated: "Despite all the conspiracies of the US and British-backed forces, Iran plays the leading role in the region, and ensures its security."

Paying tribute to the memory of the martyred Commander of Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force Lieutenant General Qasem Soleimani, Raisi stated: "Despite all the efforts made by the enemy, this high-ranking martyr ensured the security of the region, and solved many problems."

On his 19th provincial visit, Raisi arrived in Kermanshah on Thursday.
