On his part, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said the West is concerned that the Islamic Revolution is served as a model for the region and the entire world. “Enemies are making efforts to prevent the Islamic Iran from serving as a model for Muslim nations in the region because public movements will be difficult without a model,” said Ayatollah Khamenei on Wednesday. He added that the main reason behind the West pressure on the Islamic Republic is that Iran is promoting a model in the region and the globe, IRNA reported.
