Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei called for efforts to prevent any deceleration in Iran’s scientific progress.
In an address to a gathering of officials and researchers from the Institute for Cognitive Science Studies (ICSS), held in Tehran on Wednesday, Ayatollah Khamenei highlighted the need for steady scientific progress in the country.
Hailing the good scientific growth in Iran over the past 20 years, the Leader underscored, “The pace of this scientific movement should not slacken, but it must be maintained and strengthened for the next twenty to thirty years, until we reach the pinnacle.”
Ayatollah Khamenei then warned that any nation lagging behind the rest of the world in the new sciences and technologies will be doomed to underdevelopment, humiliation and exploitation by foreign powers.
Iranian scientists, researchers, and scientific centers should trust Almighty God and make unwavering efforts day and night to maintain the country’s scientific growth, particularly in the field of modern sciences, the Leader stated.
