The Iranian president said, "The secret of our victories is to be sough in our choice of paving the path laid before us by Imam Hussain (P), and that is the divine path we would keep paving, which is definitely the only path (towards salvation)."
Ahmadinejad said that thanks to the brave resistance of the Iranian nation, the enemies are today both incapable of, and hopeless for launching an attack against our land, knowing that if they would intend to violate Iran's rights anywhere in the world, this nation would face them more resolutely and more mightily than ever before, severing the hands of the aggressors."
