Leader tells officials to accelerate development process in Kordestan

SANANDAJ, May 16 (MNA) -- Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has told officials to completely implement provincial development plans in Kordestan Province and to hasten the process of development in the province.

“Plan in a way so that all these projects are quickly and completely implemented without exception, and the pious and friendly people of Kordestan Province see the practical results of them within a reasonable period of time,” he said on Friday in Kordestan Province at a meeting attended by cabinet members and other senior officials.


He stated that Kordestan is the homeland of talented youths whom the government should support.


He went on to say that there are many problems that should be resolved, and the people have legitimate expectations.


With the current financial limitations, the chasm between expectations and realities should be bridged through strenuous efforts and hard work, he added.


Ayatollah Khamenei said the brave and loyal people of Kordestan Province have always been ready to make sacrifices to defend the Islamic Republic of Iran.


He also urged the officials and all citizens of Kordestan Province to remain vigilant about the enemies’ plots and provocations.


On the next day of his trip, the Leader told a large gathering of people in Marivan that the cabinet made good decisions for resolving the problems of Kordestan Province.


“State officials, with a precise knowledge of realties, have made good decisions about the different parts of Kordestan, including Marivan, which we hope will be realized fully,” he said on Saturday.


Commenting on the fact that Saddam Hussein’s Baathist regime used chemical weapons against the people of Kordestan Province during the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war, Ayatollah Khamenei said the “lessons of thirty years of resistance and victory” must be explained to the young generation so that they learn about the hypocrisy of the arrogant powers.


Western governments lecture other countries about human rights, but companies from some of the same Western countries provided precursor chemicals to Saddam’s Baathist regime, which facilitated Iraq’s chemical weapons program.
