The leader encouraged all officials to do their best to achieve social justice and full materializing of the Islamic values. Ayatollah Khamenei said that the Islamic system`s resistance against dominant powers and Islamic awareness are the main causes of the world powers wrath against the Islamic Republic.

Referring to US hue and cry over Iran`s nuclear activities, recently echoed by the Europeans, the supreme leader added, "They know that Iran is not after acquiring nuclear weapons, so they are not much concerned over the issue, so the pretexts they create are aimed at interrupting the country`s progress by occupying the minds of all three branches` top officials."

He praised the Iranians as a people that comprehend complicated issues thoroughly and are quite logical.

Touching on the ongoing negotiation between Iran and European sides, the supreme leader said,"I say to those negotiating with representatives of the Iranian people not to lead us to the conclusion, through unjust and illogical words, that they do not believe in negotiations based on logic, because in that case, the people and the Islamic Republic will leave the negotiating table." Referring to logical interaction of the Islamic Republic of Iran with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), and Iranian officials` yielding to all UN nuclear watchdog`s demands, the supreme leader reiterated, "whenever there has been a logical word, like inspection by IAEA inspectors, we accept wholeheartedly, and yet we will never yield to any kind of oppression."

Ayatollah Khamenei said, "Long term suspension of enrichment is an illogical demand" asking, "What kind of logical relation exists between transparency and long-term suspension of (uranium) enrichment?" He stressed the Iranians are logical, dynamic and ready to hold dialogue, but do not accept illogical demands and they are ready to defend their rights appropriately." The supreme leader added, "If, under whatever form, we would discern a threat during the negotiations, that will be a sign of a lack of logic on the part of those negotiating, and in that case the Iranian people and the Islamic Republic will revise their stand on the very principle of negotiations and continued cooperation."

Elsewhere in his address, Ayatollah Khamenei referring to the spectacular achievements of the Iranian nation in various fields during the past decades, reiterated, "If our officials improve their efficiency in moving towards full manifestation of Islamic values, and remain accountable about their conduct, keeping in mind that we have abundant resources in this country and a nation with a successful experience in construction and advancement campaign, the Islamic Republic`s success in all fields against the infidels will be guaranteed."

The supreme leader meanwhile considered the holy fasting month of Ramadan as the best time span for purification of souls and correcting the mistakes made in the past for the nation and their officials.
