The president made the remarks during a ceremony in the Iranian capital to mark the second martyrdom anniversary of General Soleimani, the commander of the Qods Force of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).
The first point pursued by General Soleimani’s school is to think for God and stand up for His sake, President Raisi said.
“He specialized in conquering usurped lands, but most importantly, God placed in him the conquest of hearts, which is more important than the conquest of lands.”
Raisi noted that the main perpetrator of this horrible crime – the former US President Donald Trump – has to be convicted; otherwise the hand of revenge will come out of the sleeve of the nation.
