Hujjat al-Islam Akrami said that the Iranian people have the capacities, the abilities and the ‎aptitude that we need in our country and we ‎can achieve self-sufficiency. ‎

RNA – In an exclusive interview with Rasa News Agency, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyed Reza ‎Akrami, the chairman of the Cultural Council of the President of Iran, said that from the ‎beginning of the victory of the Islamic Revolution until today, it has been subject to the ‎brutal pressure of the United States and said, “From February 11, 1979 until today, we have ‎always been under threat, sanctions and psychological pressures.”‎

His Eminence stated that the pressures of the West have been intensifying and will never be ‎reduced in size and said, “We don’t believe that the superpowers have ever behaved in such ‎a cowardly way toward a country and a system before.”‎
‎ ‎
Referring to the Quranic verse “Prepare against them whatever you can of [military] power ‎and war-horses, awing thereby the enemy of God,” [8:60] he emphasized, “We must ‎consider the imposition of threats, sanctions and psychological operations by the West ‎against Iran an opportunity and use them to become a superpower.”‎
‎ ‎
Hujjat al-Islam Akrami‎ argued today that we must reach a level of power in which the ‎enemies fear us and said, ‎“We must achieve a degree of self-sufficiency and independence in ‎the Islamic world, so that ‎the enemies can’t implement their goals through pressure and ‎sanctions.”‎

His Eminence stressed that the officials must take the hostility of the enemies seriously and ‎believe in domestic capacities and said, “We have the capacities, the abilities and the ‎aptitude that we need in our country and we can achieve self-sufficiency but unfortunately, ‎we are unaware of these great capacities don’t use them to our full potential.”‎

Saying that if the internal capacities are neglected and don’t actualize our abilities, the ‎enemies will exploit our procrastination, he noted, “If we don’t strengthen our internal ‎capacities, the enemies will observe the weaknesses of our society and will invest in these ‎same areas.”‎
‎ ‎
Hujjat al-Islam Akrami noted that the enemies have misused Iran’s weaknesses and try to ‎impose more pressures upon the country and when we show our weakness to the enemies, ‎we will be faced with new excuses from them every day.‎
‎ ‎
He considered the policy of sanctions and pressure to be the lowest form of diplomacy in ‎the world and said, “We must know that as long as we act in accordance with the ‎commandments of the religious principles, the enemies won’t find any superiority over us. If ‎we don’t rely on domestic capacities, the enemies will become victorious over us.”‎

Hujjat al-Islam Akrami ‎said that if we don’t believe our internal power and don’t follow the ‎guidelines of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution (Ayatollah Khamenei), we won’t ‎achieve victory and said, “Today, unfortunately, we face a large volume of imports and if ‎this action isn’t uncontrolled and irregular imports aren’t prevented, we won’t achieve ‎economical self-sufficiency.”‎
