Iran must increase pace of scientific progress

TEHRAN, Jan. 23 (MNA) – Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said the pace of scientific progress of the country should be preserved and strengthened for the 20 to 30 years to come so that we reach the pinnacle of scientific growth.

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says Iran must maintain and increase the pace of its scientific progress. "Iran must not be content with its current level of advancement in science or pause its progress," he noted.

Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks in ameeting with a number of researchers and officials from the Institute for Cognitive Science Studies (ICSS), on Wednesday.

He described Iran’s scientific progress over the past 20 years as good but stressed it should gain more momentum.

Ayatollah Khamenei made two recommendations at the meeting: firstly, he said, Iranian scientists should make use of all of the scientific accomplishments of the West and never refrain from being a learner and from learning. "We are never embarrassed of being learners and of learning; but we are ashamed of ‘always remaining a learner,’” Ayatollah Khamenei added.

Leader also advised against putting trust in the plans and advice prescribed by the West.

“Western countries, which today are the most advanced in the fields of modern sciences, have also committed the highest number of crimes against nations throughout history.”
