Iran’s President praises Imam Khomeini on anniversary of victory of Islamic Revolution

Iran celebrates the anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Republic, and President Hassan Rouhani said on Monday that Imam Khomeini is a really great person in the country’s history, IRNA reported.

In his address, the Iranian president made the remarks during a visit to Imam Khomeini’s mausoleum. The country’s leader and his cabinet ministers paid tribute to the late leader on the occasion of the 42nd victory anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.

As Rouhani stressed, Imam Khomeini was well aware that the soft power will prevail over hard power and therefore opted for the soft power.

Iran’s President who is serving last year of his second term in office said that the leaders of the 1979 national revolutions tend to rely on either the political parties or the military powers. Meantime, the great Imam Khomeini preferred none of them and relied on the people, instead.
