During a meeting with lawmakers in Tehran on Wednesday, Ayatollah Khamenei commended the strategic laws passed by the parliament including the Strategic Action Plan to Counter Sanctions, Press TV reported.
“This law clearly defined what we should do, and we are witnessing its manifestations in the world,” the Leader said.
Under the legislation, which was approved in December 2020, the Iranian government is required to restrict the inspections of Iran’s nuclear facilities by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and accelerate the development of the country’s nuclear program beyond the limits set under the 2015 nuclear agreement. It was adopted in a bid to counter illegal sanctions imposed on Iran by the United States and its Western allies.
Ayatollah Khamenei also congratulated the Iranian nation on the anniversary of the liberation of the city of Khorramshahr in the course of Iraq’s war of aggression against Iran in the 1980s, describing the event as a “miraculous epic”.
The southwestern port city was recaptured during a landmark operation, code-named Beit ol-Moqaddas in 1982, putting an end to over 500 days of occupation by forces of the ex-Iraqi dictator’s regime.
The Leader said that the initiatives used in the outstanding operation and the sacrifices made by Iranian martyrs were more important than the great victory, adding that these facts should not fade into oblivion.
