In a meeting with 50 lawmakers on Tuesday, Said Jalili expressed his views of the Supreme Leader as "Besides the fact that according to the law and Sharia the Supreme Leader has the final say, he is the most expert person in diverse fields.”
Asked about his relations with the Deviant Current, Jalili asserted "We strongly avoid those who make divergence with the Supreme Leader. We cannot have some people, especially from the government, go tangentially with him.”
Jalili said that it has done wrong to the system whenever someone went astray from the Supreme Leader.
Secretary of the High Council for National Security considered the country’s post-Revolution achievements owing to the Revolutionary discourse, saying "The greater our adherence to this discourse, the greater our advances have been. It is no surprise that whenever we diverged from the discourse we had weaknesses and there were problems and much waste of opportunities.”
