Addressing thousands of worshipers at Tehran University Campus, Ayatollah Jannati said, "Serious confrontation with US hegemony, being transparent in affairs and frankly announcing enmity with the enemies are among the valuable approaches of the government which are manifestations of its strength.
"If a government is weak, it resorts to flattery, courtesy and respect and even if it is against something, it doesn't dare to announce its opposition, but a strong government announces its opposition frankly," the Ayatollah said.
He added, "The grandeur of this government has been established now everywhere and the world has known about its stability." Stressing that all the threats and sanctions by the hegemonic powers have been futile, Ayatollah Jannati said they thought that they could reach their objectives by employing the language of force and they used this language in the negotiations but "we never retracted from our positions." "Thanks God, we are now at a point in which no one can deprive us of our nuclear technology," Ayatollah Jannati said.
Congratulating the government on the occasion of 'Government Week' (August 24-30), Ayatollah Jannati expounded on President Ahmadinejad's successes in its two years at office.
Being justice seeking, President's trips to provinces, the courageous decision on rationing gasoline, adopting an economical approach in running affairs and reducing banks rate of interest were among the points which Ayatollah Jannati mentioned as the correct and wise decisions of President Ahmadinejad's administration.
