iran needs to detach from oil-oriented economy (21.03.1998)

tehran, march 21, irna -- leader of the islamic revolution and supreme religious jurisprudent grand ayatollah Seyyid Ali Khamene’i addressed a large gathering of the pilgrims and people in Maschhad saturday, elaborating on the economic, political and propaganda conspiracies of the enemies against the iranian nation.

the leader stated that being economic minded through refrainment of extravagancy, conservation of resources, being gratified and steadfast to the values and ideals of islam and the islamic revolutionary is not only bound to disappoint the enemies but it will also help preserve and consolidate the dignity and the greatness of the islamic republic of iran in different areas.

"the incessant propaganda machinery, economic satanic designs and sanctions, and political ploys of the enemies are aimed at portraying a weak and incapable profile of islamic sovereignty in resolving its economic issues," the supreme religious jurisprudent said. the leader pointed out that an active, alert and efficient nation has proved that it can focus its attention in finding solution in matters related to its own affairs through the refrainment of extravagancy, conservation of resources and leading a content life so as to neutralize the plots of the enemies. grand ayatollah stressed that prodigality is forbidden in islam and that the enemies are pushing the nation towards being extravagant to attain their goal. "the enemy is trying to exert its influence by bringing oil price to its lowest ebb and imposition of its sanction against the islamic republic of iran in order to deliver an economic blow to the nation," expounded the leader.

"it is unfortunate that iran had been made dependent on oil as the major and only source of nation's income during the previous ousted shah's regime," ayatollah Khamene’i underlined. the leader added, "now the nation needs to follow the policy that would make it independent from oil revenues and orient the country's economy towards non-oil income through an increase of production, and the export of agricultural produce, industrial items and expertise services." "only then could oil be used as a efficient instrument in the international leverage of power politics by the islamic republic of iran," deduced the leader.

ayatollah Khamene’i told the congregated people that the enemy plot is to humiliate the nation by smirching the dignity, honor and respect in the eyes of the people of the world. "today the iranian nation is ever-powerful, determined and valiant and that it acts according to its own free-will and volition and that no other powers can dictate it will over the sovereignty of the islamic republic of iran," the supreme jurisprudent pointed out. "it is this status that is being highly esteemed and specifically valued as the prestigious position of the iranian nation," said the leader.

the grand ayatollah stated that "it is also this honorable status that has been recognized by other nations around the world during the islamic revolution, the eight-year iraqi imposed war, the economic sanction, and other political scenarios devised against iran." in other part of his speech, referring to the myconos affairs, where europe was made to accept the terms laid by the islamic republic of iran, leader of islamic revolution pointed out that "we are not forced to have relations with the united states and that we shall maintain our stance with dignity, basing our policy on islam and national power." "the islamic republic of iran has not been isolated by having no ties with the united stated; on the contrary, it is the u.s. which has been isolated in most of instances. the eighth oic summit in tehran last december is a good example to cite," ayatollah Khamene’i stated.

he said in part: "every change in the world is in the hand of mankind, and all developments take place as the result of the will-power of men... "all incovenience that the people tolerate is due to distance from god and disobedience of divine dictates. thanks god our nation has started a great movement towards that path. i hope our people will go ahead from the point of view of individual and group ethics... "the year that we have just left behind was full of big events with sweet and bitter developments. in my opinion one of the most important events last year was the presidential election and the vast participation of the people in that election... "thanks god they made a good choice. our president who is one of the children of the revolution, and a descendant of the prophet (pbuh) in the clerical robe managed to demonstrate his capacity and made the enemies understand that they cannot look down on the islamic republic... "you people have had various experiences relying on your own national character and with deep faith in islam. in the future you must tread the same path. "we know that the people have expectations from the government in various fields. they are proper expectations in the main. the officials with various government agencies are trying to fulfill the expectations of the people but there are also enemies who try to torpedo their efforts...

"we are no exception to the governments and nations that have historically existed. all of them have had their own enemies. we, too, have our own enemies. those nations adopted different strategies in their confrontation with their enemies which were responsible for their fate. many stood out against their enemies wisely and adamantly and ended out triumphantly. many proved wanting in determination, and proved too simple-minded and gullible in dealing with their enemies and suffered defeat. we must take a lesson...

"one such act has been the reduction in price of oil... i do not mean to say that it has been undertaken solely and independently by our enemies with the idea of pounding a blow only to the islamic republic. the plot has been truly by our enemies, but then, too, our enemies have also been aided by uninformed friends and also by people who were unable to think wisely and intelligently. they adopted wrong decisions, and of course they were aided and abetted by our enemies... "we must cope with that situation intelligently... i wish to advise the dear iranian nation against extravagant consumption...

"as a nation there is no justification for us to indulge in extravagance at the cost of sacrificing the greater future good of our nation or our long-term goals or even our important present-day preferences. we have no right to overlook our future needs. everybody must think seriously of thrift and economical consumption. "my primary recommendation to the people this year is to be wise

and economic consumers. so, too, must be the administration. the administration, in addition to economizing on consumption must also teach the nation how to do it... and do it in time... "this is not to invite the people to any period of economic austerity. we are not compelled to do that. the economic austerity is an unhappy scene which i hope will never be staged here. i only invite the people to reasonable thrift, and of the kind in which they will take pride. a wise thrift by wise and discreet people who know that they will ensure their future by economizing on consumption, who know that in doing so they will have helped the normal life and the economic well-being of their nation, who know that they will thereby have helped the administrators to adopt wise decisions for handling the affairs of the state.

"i pray for you again, and hope this will be a happy new year and a revitalizing and blessfull spring for the people with a prosperous and proud year for all.
