The Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces—Ayatollah Khamenei—attended the graduation ceremony of army cadets at the Imam Khomeini Naval Academy in Nowshahr today (September 9, 2018), as part of his visit to the city.

At the beginning of this ceremony, Ayatollah Khamenei paid tribute to the martyrs of defense against Saddam’s US-backed war on Iran by visiting the graves of five unidentified martyrs buried at the site of the academy and recited sura Al-Fatiha. The Leader of the Revolution then inspected the troops at the field.

The ceremony followed with appreciation of Commodore Habibollah Sayyari, the Coordinating Deputy of Islamic Republic of Iran’s Army. He was awarded a first grade Fath Medal by the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces—Ayatollah Khamenei—for his praiseworthy services in safeguarding water frontiers of the country, Oman sea, safeguarding the national interests of Iran and raising the flag of the Islamic Republic of Iran in international waters, as well as endeavoring for renovating equipment and improving Makran coastal strip during the time he held office as the commander of the Strategic Navy of Islamic Republic of Iran’s Army.

The ceremony also included granting epaulettes to the representative of the cadets and was closed with a field manoeuvre carried by the Naval Forces in the presence of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces.

ِAt this event, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces delivered a speech wherein he stressed that preventing the formation of an Islamic power in Southwestern Asia is what the U.S. and the Zionist Regime seek, adding: "They know that the fascinating message of Islam is defending the oppressed and the underprivileged; thus, they fear the formation of a power based on Islam."
Ayatollah Khamenei dubbed the powerful resistance of the Islamic Republic against the Front of Arrogance as a factor that led to the defeat of the oppressors of the world in purusing their goals in the region and reminded his audience: "Political analysts and world-known intellectuals are astonished by how Iran, relying on God and the national power, has left the global powers unaccomplished in our region and they acknowledge this reality.

The leader of the Islamic Revolution called threatening, domineering, and bullying in words, the main methods used by oppressive powers to terrify other nations and stressed: " If a nation is not scared of these methods; and moves in the path of truth and justice with bravery, confidence and belief in their capabilities, they will make the domineering powers to retreat.

Ayatollah Khamenei regarded the Islamic Republic as a prominent example of this reality and stated: "Since 40 years ago, Iran has been the target of the sabotage by the U.S. and its allies. However, now Iran has grown from a small sapling into a big and fruitful tree. Despite the enemies' efforts and measures for countering it, Iran has attracted the hearts of other nations to the message of the revolution and has defeated the conspiracies of the U.S. in the region.”

The leader of the Islamic Revolution called the cases of Syria, Iraq and Lebanon as examples wherein the conspiracies of the United States in the region suffered a defeat and went on to say: "These cases are signs of the power of God and the affirmation of the Divine Promise, that: if you assist [the cause of] God, God will assist you with victory and persistence.
In another part of his speech, the Commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces advised the Armed Forces to increase innovations, preparations and capabilities in academic, organizational, military, and other areas, adding: "According to a holy verse in the Quran, add to your power as much as you can, because your sovereignty frightens the enemy and make it retreat.”

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution advised all the people, especially the youth, to be cautious and to block the enemies' temptations from affecting the general ambience of their life. He then asserted: "Do not let the enemies infiltrate and disturb the homogenous lines of the devout youth.”
The leader of the revolution described the enemy's efforts in the cyberspace and other realms as desperate and added: Nonetheless, the enemy is very active in different fields, and we must stand against them with vigilance, unity, and while relying on God.
