Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution said on Sunday “‘Why should a so-called “International” community- which is definitely infiltrated by the superpowers—have the right to make decisions for the nations of the world with various cultures?'”

He made the remarks in a meeting with a group of teachers, education specialists and university students of Farhangian Universities (teacher training universities) on the occasion of the National Teachers' Day.

According to the official website of the Leader office, at this meeting, Ayatollah Khamenei stressed that the Islamic Republic of Iran will not surrender to UNESCO’s Global Education 2030 Agenda.

He added, “The UNESCO 2030 education agenda and the like are not issues that the Islamic Republic of Iran could surrender and submit to.”

Ayatollah Khamenei slammed the superpowers' dominance over the United Nations by saying that ‘Why should a so-called “International” community- which is definitely infiltrated by the superpowers—have the right to make decisions for the nations of the world with various cultures?'

The Leader said that Iran will not sign such documents and added, “This is wrong per se. That we sign an agenda and begin to carry it out secretly is wrong. It is not permitted at all. I declared it.”

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution went on to express grievances of the Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution for neglecting to supervise the signing of the document, further stating that, “ I am disappointed by the Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution. They should have taken care of it and prevented it from getting to where it is now, so that I would not have to take action and prevent it. It is the Islamic Republic here!'

Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to the upcoming election, inviting people to participate.

'If you want this enthusiasm, dignity and immunity to last for us, you should take part in the elections. If you wish the Islamic Republic of Iran’s establishment to preserve its power in the eyes of the people of the world—whether friends or foes—you should participate [in the elections],' said Ayatollah Khamenei, emphasizing that 'Partaking in the elections protects the power, dignity and immunity of the country.”

The Leader of the revolution declared, “It is not important who you vote for. It is important for everyone to turn out and take part to show that they are ready to defend Islam and the Islamic Republic.”

He highlighted the significance of deterring the enemies by displaying the dignity of the country and noted, “If this diligence and willpower continue to exist as mighty and dignified as it is now, the enemy will never be able to do a single thing against the country.”

Ayatollah Khamenei said, “What is urgently necessary for the management and protection of the interests of the nation is the partaking of the people. It is the partaking of the people that can solve the problems. It is the nation’s turnout that scares the enemies, making them fear the Islamic Republic’s solemnity. The Islamic Republic is seen as solemn by its enemies. Does this solemnity come from people like this humble person? Never! It emerges from the people and the public partaking. It emerges from the people’s enthusiasm and sentiments.”

Ayatollah Khamenei further went on to clarify that he does not imply people should vote for a certain candidate by stating that, “I am saying this so that no one will come up to distort what I have clearly declared and claim that I imply that people’s partaking will elect an administration into office which would... no sir! It is not about the administrations. Have you forgotten what happened in the 90s? When a European government accused our president and called him to the court? And it happened despite the fact that the European government expressed friendship and letters were often exchanged. The same government called the administration of our president to the court. We hit them [the European government] in the mouth and they withdrew. If we hadn’t slapped them they wouldn’t have retreated.”

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution said, “The enemy is the enemy. It is not about which administration is in office. The enemy will try to blow a strike once it can and it won’t care for anyone. It does not care about drawing on rhetoric, glib talking and taking political stances. What stops the animosity is the fear of the public taking part. Because the enemy fears that an 80-million nation would stand against it.”
