Call for Sustained Technological Progress
Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says Iran should continue making progress in the field of nanotechnology, which can serve as a model for progress in other sectors.
Speaking on the sidelines of a visit to an exhibition showcasing the latest achievements in nanotechnology, Ayatollah Khamenei said the advances in nanotechnology can be considered a yardstick for progress in other areas.
He pointed to "careful planning", "consistency in management" and "discovery of top talents" as major elements which can help maintain the momentum of technological progress.
Ayatollah Khamenei added that political motivations should not affect the country's scientific and research arenas. Elsewhere, the Leader said the enmity of tyrannical powers toward the Iranian nation is due to the country's independent political, social and intellectual approaches, adding, "This hostility shows itself in different fields, so we should make ourselves stronger day by day to achieve the required strength."
In addition, Ayatollah Khamenei called on the government to pay more attention to the fields of nanotechnology and biotechnology and allocate more funds to support research in these areas.
