Ambassador: Self-reliance, genuine message of Islamic Revolution

Tehran, Feb 6, IRNA – Self-reliance and independence are two genuine messages of the Islamic Revolution which can set a model of growth for Latin American countries, including Venezuela, Iran’s ambassador to Caracas, Mostafa A’laei said on Wednesday.

A’laei made the remarks while talking to Venezuelan Globovision news network on the occasion of the 40th victory anniversary of Iran's Islamic Revolution.

Referring to historical developments of Iran over the past century, including nationalization of oil industry and the US- and British-backed 1953 coup against the legitimate government of Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddeq, the ambassador said the uprising of the Iranian people, led by late Imam Khomeini in 1963, prepared the ground for the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

He stressed that the Latin American countries can take lessons from the Islamic Revolution.
