Khamenei waves to the commanders of Revolutionary Guards during a meeting in Tehran yesterday.
Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned commanders of the elite Revolutionary Guards yesterday to be on alert for “political and cultural” infiltration by the United States.
“The main purpose of the enemies is for Iranians to give up on their revolutionary mentality,” Khamenei told a gathering of Guards commanders and personnel in Tehran.
“Enemy means global arrogance, the ultimate symbol of which is the United States,” he said, calling on the powerful branch of the military to protect the revolution.
“Economic and security breaches are definitely dangerous, and have dire consequences,” he said.
“But political and cultural intrusion by the enemy is a more serious danger that everyone should be vigilant about,” he added.
The enemies “are waiting for a time when the nation and system fall asleep, for example in 10 years when I may not be here, to realise their objectives”, the 76-year-old said.
“But the nation and the authorities won’t let that happen.”
Khamenei, win Iran after the nuclear agreement with world powers struck two months ago.
