Leader: Sacred Defense proved invading Iran very costly

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says Iran's decisively victorious defense against foreign-backed forces of Iraq’s former dictator Saddam Hussein proved that invading the country is a “very costly” undertaking.

“When a nation shows that it has the diligence and power to defend itself and delivers a crushing response to invaders, invaders would then think twice before perpetrating any incursion against this country and its people, and realize that such an act of aggression would be very costly for them,” the Leader said on Monday.

Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks via video-link during an event held in the capital Tehran to honor one million veterans of the country’s 1980-88 war against Saddam's invading forces.
