In comments at a Judiciary meeting on Monday, the top judge lauded the Iranian lawmakers for ratifying the strategic action bill and “forcing the enemy to carry out commitments to the international agreements and treaties.”
The outsiders must bear in mind that they ought to pay the cost of pressures on Iran, the Judiciary chief underlined, adding, “The more leverages and components of power we have, the higher the enemy’s costs of hostility and pressure on the (Iranian) nation will be.”
Raeisi further called on Iranian officials to adopt unified and revolutionary stances based on the realities on the ground, not personal and political views.
The Islamic Republic’s resistance should come with the generation of power in the economic, scientific, security and defense spheres, the top judge added.
