“Nuclear industry is fundamental to country’s power.” Ayatollah Khamenei
WANA (Jun 11 – Leader office) – In a meeting with a group of scientists, experts and officials of Iran’s nuclear industry, which took place on June 11, 2023 in the Imam Khomeini Hussainiyah, Imam Khamenei described this industry as the key to the country’s progress in various sectors.
In this exhibition, the most important achievements made by experts and researchers of nuclear technology were put on display in the fields of agriculture, medicine and the health sector, industry, the environment, water and the construction of power plants.
Imam Khamenei sincerely thanked the scientists, officials and those active in the nuclear industry. He described the exhibition as fantastic, pleasing and promising.
“People should be introduced to the various dimensions of these developments and the effects they have on people’s live,” he said.
In explaining the threefold importance of the nuclear industry, he considered this industry to be “honoring” for the country on a global scale in terms of progress and the development of capabilities. He also pointed out the fundamental impact that nuclear achievements have had in the development of people’s lives.
In this regard, he underlined that the nuclear industry is the counterpoint to the enemies’ efforts to show that the country has no future.
“The nuclear industry revives the spirit of hope and national self-confidence in our society. It shows people, especially the youth, that it is possible to enter grand arenas and conquer them,” he stated.
Referring to the strategic and at the same time “objective and tangible” importance of the nuclear industry, Imam Khamenei considered it as one of the fundamental components of Iran’s power and credibility.
“Whoever loves Iran and the Islamic Republic, and whoever wants this country to make progress and become strong, must give credit and importance to scientific research and industrial activities in the nuclear field.”
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution further emphasized that the West’s claim about “the fear of nuclear weapons production in Iran” is a lie, adding that the US intelligence community has acknowledged the fact several times, including in recent months, that there is no sign of Iran moving towards the production of nuclear weapons.
