Major General Hossein Salami made the remarks at a gathering of popular mobilization volunteers (Basij) of the IRGC Tehran branch.
Salami said that the Iranian nation managed to overcome difficult times thanks to the great efforts that the people made and their presence when they were needed.
Referring to the cultural and economic war that the enemy is waging against the Iranian nation, the IRGC Commander-in-Chief said, “The enemy came and surrounded us to close the doors of the world to us and deprive us of science and knowledge, and to pursue this issue seriously by assassinating our scientists.”
He added that the enemies sought to frustrate the Iranian people while underlining that “you people have defeated them (enemies).”
“The enemy has been defeated in Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Afghanistan, and it has failed in an economic war and maximum pressure campaign, so we should thank God for having such a brave and courage nation,” he said.
