Iranian Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani said Thursday that the recommendations of Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khameni have turned all threats against the Iranian nation to opportunities, IRNA reported.
Larinaji made the remarks on the occasion of the establishment anniversary of Islamic Councils in the old Majlis building in Tehran.
"Safeguarding Iranian nation's rights is the main concern of the Supreme Leader," he said.
Referring to Iran's peaceful nuclear energy program, Larijani added the Supreme Leader has always defended the national interests.
Pointing to the latest regional developments, the Majlis speaker declared that Ayatollah Khamenei is scrutinizing the Middle East events constantly.
On April 17, Khamenei, who, according to the constitution, has the final say on all state affairs, vetoed Ahmadinejad's decision to replace the country's intelligence chief, Heydar Moslehi.
The issue led to speculations of a dispute between the leader and president, with several influential ayatollahs calling on Ahmadinejad to follow the leader's orders and let Moslehi stay in the intelligence service.
Moslehi unexpectedly submitted his resignation, and it was immediately accepted by Ahmadinejad.
