Supreme Leader: Countries sanctioned by the US and Western powers must work together to end bans

Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, has stated that countries subjected to unilateral sanctions imposed by the United States and its Western allies must work together to eliminate those sanctions.

Iran (IMNA) - On Monday, the Supreme leader made the statements during a meeting with visiting Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.

Describing the present mutual grounds between Iran and Belarus, the Leader stated that the imposition of coercive sanctions on Tehran and Minsk by the US and other Western powers is one of those common reasons.

The Leader declared, "Those nations that the United States has sanctioned must dismantle the weapon of sanctions by cooperating with one another and forging a common group, and we believe this is feasible to do.

Ayatollah Khamenei added, "Severe sanctions made Iran discover its own intrinsic capabilities and strengths," referring to the American sanctions imposed against Iran since the Islamic Revolution's victory and the harshest sanctions imposed over the previous 12 years.

"Many grounds for success were granted to Iran during the sanctions period, and our country succeeded in making eye-catching advancements in different disciplines, including science and technology, medicine and biology, aerospace, [as well as] nuclear [science] and nano[technology]," the Leader stated.

"We have come to know our true and fake friends under the current difficult international conditions, and we are resolved to engage in special collaboration with our true friends," Lukashenko concluded.
