The members of the Assembly of Experts were received in audience on March 14 by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Khamenei. The body in charge of supervising the leadership action has just elected its new vice-president in the person of Hojjat ol-Islam Raissi.
In part of his speech, Ayatollah Khamanei referred to the hostile policy of the United States towards Iran and how Iran is dealing with this policy: “The experience of the PGAC (nuclear agreement) is largely instructive. This is an agreement to which we have signed, an agreement signed by both the United States and Europe. But the Americans have withdrawn from it, even if it means withdrawing all their commitments before the eyes of the whole world. This is an experience from which lessons must be learned.
Later in his remarks, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution referred to the threat campaign against Iran in recent months by both Israel and the United States, the latter having threatened to impose the harshest sanctions against Iran: “The United States has mobilized all its resources against the Iranian nation and state. Their defeat is there and it will be the greatest in the history of America, if we too mobilize all our resources.
