(Persia Digest) – Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, has said that the main plan to confront the Islamic Republic currently is an economic warfare. He emphasized: “The only way to counter this is by buying Iranian and relying on our own strength instead of outsiders.”

He said an outcome of supporting Iranian brands would be to avoid the social, security, and moral consequences of unemployment, and reiterated: “Supporting Iranian goods is one of the best ways of dealing with the economic plans of our enemies; because, they are aware that they cannot win a military war.”

He added: “A few years ago, during the previous US administration and a President who was as bad-tempered and nonsensical as the current President, I did say the hit and run days were over and if they enter into an armed conflict with Iran, they will suffer the consequences.”

The Leader of the Revolution reiterated: “Presently, they have focused on an economic and cultural warfare with the Islamic Republic, and the war room is the US Department of Treasury.”

Ayatollah Khamenei added that another method used by the US to confront the IR of Iran was instigating certain low IQ regional governments to incite conflict here, and added: “The Americans are trying to provoke the Saudis and a number of other countries in the region to bring them toe-to-toe with the Islamic Republic. But if they are wise, they will not be deceived by the US.”

He continued: “These countries must be aware that if they confront the IR of Iran, they will be defeated.”

The Leader of the Revolution pointed to the war and insecurity in the region caused by US presence in West Asia, and emphasized: “This is why the Americans must leave our region.”

Ayatollah Khamenei stressed that it is the US who must leave the region not the IR of Iran, and continued: “We belong here. The Persian Gulf and West Asia is our home. You are the outsiders pursuing seditious reasons here.”

He went on to say: “US presence – and that of other similar countries – will certainly be cut short in the region.”
