Commander Stresses Iran's Leading Role in World.

Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- The world nations are now following Iran's path in their confrontation with the arrogant powers, a senior Iranian military commander stressed.

"The nations of the world have chosen the Islamic Republic of Iran as their leader," Commander of Iran's Basij (volunteer) Forces Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi said.

Naqdi stressed the sensitivity of Iran's leading role, and called on the Iranian officials to avoid the moves which might come to be a source of despair for the other Muslim nations.

He further expressed confidence about Muslim victory in the confrontation against the Zionist regime of Israel, and stated that the Muslim nations of the region will soon push the Israeli regime back to the borders that existed before 1919 and will set the holy Quds (Jerusalem) free

Earlier this month, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei had also underscored the profound and vast influence of Iran's Islamic Revolution on the growing wave of Islamic awakening in the region, and voiced confidence about the desirable outcomes of the current popular uprisings.

"Thanks to Islam and Islamic Revolution, a public Islamic awakening has happened in the region today, which will definitely yield its results as it has already yielded its results in certain points," Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing a group of Iranian people here in Tehran.

"The more the people's determination, faith and readiness for sacrifice grows, the higher the chances of victory will be," the Leader continued.
