He made the remarks in a meeting with intellectuals and lecturers of universities and seminaries on Wednesday.
The Leader praised great potentials of Iranian intellectuals and scientists and said, „There are major objectives and tasks that should be carried out by taking advantage of great capacities and capabilities of the elite.“
Ayatollah Khamenei urged Iranian intellectuals to get more involved in the country’s macro issues.
He highlighted the significance of drawing plans for the future of the country, saying that it is necessary to refrain from making hasty decisions to achieve an end result.
„In the Islamic-Iranian model for progress, objectives will be set but the strategies may be changed or amended in proportion to timing issues. This reflects the flexibility of the model,“ Ayatollah Khamenei said.
The Leader warned that the country may face „contradictory moves“ in the absence of such a comprehensive plan similar to certain cultural and economic issues over the past 30 years.
He emphasized that goals and values of the plan should be based on Islamic teachings and said it is a matter of honor for the Islamic establishment in Iran to make plans for progress on the basis of Islamic resources.
„The use of two concepts of ‚Islamic‘ and ‚Iranian‘ is never meant to reject achievements and rightful experiences of others,“ the Leader went on to say.
Ayatollah Khamenei further stressed that historical, geographical, cultural, economic and social circumstances should also be taken into consideration in the plan for progress.
He underlined that the present time is appropriate to draw the plan for an Islamic-Iranian progress.
„Innovation and the positive move pertaining to scientific independence should be continued at a rapid pace,“ the Leader concluded.
