TEHRAN (NNN-IRNA) – Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said Wednesday, that, relying on the western states will not contribute to the country’s scientific growth, state TV reported.

“Looking to the West and Europe, has no benefit, other than having to stand still, begging favours and undergoing humiliation,” Mr Khamenei said, in a meeting with scientific elites, in the capital, Tehran, on Wednesday.

“Instead, the Iranian nation should take the countries in the East, as an example, for its scientific progress,” he was quoted as saying by Press TV.

Mr Khamenei warned the Iranian scientific elites of, what he called, wars imposed against Iran, on “economic, political and security” fronts, and urged them not to remain indifferent, in the face of such challenges.

“If we make progress on the scientific path, the threats posed by the enemies of our civilisation, politics and economy will be aborted,” he said.
