In a televised speech on the anniversary of the 1978 popular uprising of the people of Tabriz, Imam Khamenei said Iran has had enough of empty promises about the 2015 deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
The Leader made it clear that Iran has heard many good words and promises about the but the deal has been violated in practice, demanding practical action on fulfillment of the JCPOA by the other parties.
Imam Khamenei underlined that what matters to Iran this time will be actions alone, not promises like the past.
Appreciating the efforts of people of Tabriz in the victory of the Islamic Revolution, the Leader said the revolution was able to turn Iran “from a scientifically backward country, economically dependent on the great powers and politically follower of some countries, into an independent, beloved and very successful country.”
His eminence noted that strengthening the country’s military and defense forces was one of the achievements of the revolution.
“Today, the military status is tens of times better than it was in the days before the revolution, and we are a great regional power.”
“The reason behind US and Israel conspiracies is that they see that the revolution is not stopped and is moving forward,” Imam Khamenei said.
