TEHRAN (Iran News) – Referring to the footprints of the enemy in recent riots in the country, President Ebrahim Raisi says that Iranian university students and professors will not allow the false dreams of the enemy to come true.
Speaking in a ceremony held on the occasion of the start of the New Academic Year (2022-2022) at Alzahra University, Ebrahim Raisi pointed to the recent riots in the country over the death of a 22-year-old Iranian woman, Mahsa Amini, and said that the enemy thought that it could pursue its malicious plots in the country through universities.
But the enemy was unaware of the vigilance of Iranian university students and professors that they do not the enemy’s false dreams to come true, he added.
Elsewhere in his remarks, he pointed to the negotiations on Iran nuclear deal, saying, “From the beginning, we announced that we will not leave the negotiation table, but we will commit to honorable negotiations, and today the logic of the Islamic Republic of Iran is accepted in the world.”
The United States, under former President Donald Trump, abandoned the agreement in May 2018 and reinstated unilateral sanctions that the agreement had lifted.
The talks to salvage the agreement kicked off in Vienna in April last year, months after Joe Biden succeeded Trump, with the intention of examining Washington’s seriousness in rejoining the deal and removing anti-Iran sanctions. Despite notable progress, the US’ indecisiveness and procrastination caused multiple interruptions in the marathon talks.
Raisi clarified, “When an educated Iranian woman presents an important scientific achievement at the world level and is placed on a platform, the flag of the Islamic Republic is raised and the national anthem of Iran is played, this creates strength for the country”.
Stating that science and knowledge are important components of power and ability, Ayatollah Raisi said, “Today, the country has achieved high levels of power and ability with the efforts of professors and students. While in the past we needed to import barbed wire in this country and we were denied the same, today we have achieved amazing progress in various scientific and industrial fields despite the most extensive sanctions, and with God’s help, this path will continue”.
In another part of his speech, the President congratulated the new students and stated, “Devote all your efforts to research, and the government will also use all its efforts to provide the necessary equipment and facilities for you”.
Raisi described solving the concern of employment for male and female students as one of the tasks of the government and said, “The government considers the university as its think tank and expects universities and scientific centers to come to the aid of the government with new ideas and initiatives”.
Raisi continued his speech by referring to the traces of the enemy in the recent riots and stated, “The enemy thought that they could follow their desires inside the university, unaware that our students and professors were awake and would not allow the enemy’s false dreams to come true”.
He Raisi explained the logic of the government in the negotiations to lift the sanctions and the enemy’s attempt to impose its conditions on Iran and said, “We announced from the beginning that we would not leave the negotiation table, but we would stick to honorable negotiations, and today the logic of the Islamic Republic of Iran is accepted in the world”.
