Top local personalities in Kermanshah province met with the Islamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei Tuesday morning in the seventh day of the IR Leader's landmark provincial visit.
The meeting was commenced by short speeches by 13 top personalities in which they expressed their views concerning different socio-political and economic issues.
Following the speeches, Ayatollah Khamenei delivered a speech, saying the grounds were prepared for the advance of the nation towards bright peaks.
Ayatollah Khamenei appreciated the young elites for their ambitious goals in drawing the prospects of the country and expressed hope the nation would enjoy more bountiful human assets in scientific and cultural domains in future.
Ayatollah Khamenei described the Kermanshah province as the handsome face of Iran in art, culture and literature, adding that, given the heroic spirit of the provincial population and the revolutionary ambience of the province, it has convened any praiseworthy features possible.
However, Ayatollah Khamenei expressed regret that the province has not been paid its deserved publicity attention, calling for more publicity efforts in this regard by the relevant authorities, including the IRIB.
Ayatollah Khamenei said the society must get accustomed to respect and dignify top personalities and holders of innovative minds, adding that he aims by his regular sessions with top Iranian personalities to set a pattern for the young generation.
The Islamic Revolution Leader said the international hegemony, motivated by the dangerous Protocols of Zion, seeks to promote deviant and unworthy models for world young generations, adding that the practice was running on premeditated policies.
Ayatollah Khamenei said a second aim he sought through the meetings was to make known the innate talent of the Iranian nation and to counter the old colonial policy of humiliating the Iranian nation and presenting it as inefficient.
"The elites of the nation have invalidated the anti-Iranian policy through their magnificent scientific and technological advances," the IR Leader said.
Ayatollah Khamenei said the Iranian level of talent scored higher than the mean international levels, adding that at time when the west was suffering an absolutely dark era in terms of knowledge and science, Iran was on the vanguards of science across the Muslim world.
"The historical reality points to abundant human talents in this corner of the world; the innate, bright talent must reappear once more," the IR Leader urged.
Ayatollah Khamenei touched on the international reports that Iran was experiencing a speed of progress several times the mean international growth speed, adding that Iran, having relied on its young talents, will manage to reach the current frontiers of science and will surpass them to provide the human community with newer scientific prospects
Ayatollah Khamenei said the ultimate goal of such advances shall be to serve human sublimity. "Nevertheless the bullies and capitalists abuse science and art so that the Hollywood, as the world center of cinema, has come to be at the service of human decadence and the nations of Afghanistan and Iraq only get bombs and chemical weapons from the western science," the IR Leader deplored.
Ayatollah Khamenei said science and art were Divine blessings in essence, adding that the Iranian nation and the Islamic Republic government will put the lofty phenomena at the service of Islam, spirituality and human sublimity.
