IRGC Commander: Iran to Defeat US Soft Plots

TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) expressed the confidence that Iran will overcome the soft plots hatched by the US against the country.

Addressing IRGC personnel in Iran's Northern city of Semnan today, Lieutenant Commander of the IRGC for Cultural and Publicity Affairs General Mohammad Ali Assoudi stated that the current Iranian year (started on March 21) is the most vital year in Iran's 34-year-long confrontation with the US-led global arrogance and international Zionism.

"This year, we will defeat the US in the field of soft war and the Islamic Revolution will gain great triumphs both on domestic and international scenes," he noted.

He pointed to the Supreme Leader's call on the Iranian nation to have an epical presence on economic and political scenes, and stated that "these are two scenes of soft warfare which are more powerful than physical warfare".

In a televised address on March 20, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei laid emphasis on the crucial importance of political and economic developments in the Persian New Year, and said the Iranian people will display an epic presence in both fields this year.

Ayatollah Khamenei further called for the Iranian nation's enthusiastic and energetic participation in the country's political and economic affairs in the New Year.

The Leader pointed to the upcoming political events in the country, the June presidential election in particular, and said, "We name the year 1392 as the Year of Political Epic and Economic Epic and hope that, God willing, economic epic and political epic will be materialized by our dear people and the country's devoted authorities this year."
