The Supreme Leader in his review on the past year pointed to the fact that the enemy clearly asserted to intend to paralyze the nation with economic restrictions, which they failed to do.
Ayatollah Khamenei said that as much as the sanctions created hard times for the people, the public progress has been one ahead.
He also asserted that despite efforts to make the Iranian nation turn cold toward their devotions, the people still stand steadfast in their beliefs.
The Supreme Leader expected the year as one of progress and movement for the Iranian nation, stressing the need that the people set industriously for making a better country.
"Political and Economic Breakthrough” was the Supreme Leader’s denomination for the new year.
