Spectacular Achievements of the Year 1401

By: Kayhan Int’l Staff Writer
Today, in our last issue of the Iranian calendar year 1401 solar hijri, we felicitate our readers on the auspicious coincidence of Nowruz or the Spring Equinox (March 21) with the start of the blessed fasting month of Ramadhan two day later. 
We earnestly hope that when we meet again after the New Year holidays on Monday, April 3, our country, our region, and our world would be firmly on the way to overcome the problems besetting humanity because of the negative policies of the US, the West European regimes, and their clients, especially the illegal Zionist entity.
The penchant of these devilish powers for bullying, oppression, exploitation, pressures, crises, wars, economic terrorism, cultural depravity, and environmental disasters on a global scale, has plunged the world in gloom.
The Islamic Republic of Iran saw spectacular progress in various fields in the year which ends on Monday. 
As part of its policies for the welfare of its citizens, it is now enriching uranium to 60 percent purity for use in a variety of peaceful projects, including medicine, agriculture, and several industries, in accordance with its inalienable right as a signatory to the NPT.
In the aerospace sector it has successfully launched satellites into space to gather vital information meteorological developments and geological research which helped Iran discover some 8.5 million tons of lithium deposits of 10 percent of the total deposits of what is called ‘white gold’ and extensively used in the manufacture of pollution-free batteries and other industries.
In the pharmaceutical sector, the Islamic Republic started manufacture of medicine for treatment of cancer and some high-technology equipment making it self-sufficient in this vital field.
Iran’s committed personnel took the country to new heights in the defence field by developing hypersonic cruise and other missiles, sophisticated drones, aircraft, and state-of-the-art vessels for its ever-expanding navy.
The year that ends on March 20 also saw Iran become a full-fledge member of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) thereby increasing its international stature and busting the illegal sanctions imposed by archenemy US.
As a matter of fact, Iran’s oil and petrochemical exports soared significantly over the past twelve months to the exasperation of Washington.
There were many other achievements, such as cyberspace and artificial intelligence which cannot be listed because of lack time and space, and will become more dazzling in the New Year.
Always the loser, the US, along with the three notorious West European regimes of France, Germany, and Britain, made a desperate attempt to destabilize Iranian society by bankrolling a group of thugs, traitors, terrorists, professional murderers and blasphemers to commit acts of arson, robbery, sacrilege, and vandalism in a few parts of Tehran and some other cities.
These sporadic riots which quickly fizzled out failed to tarnish the image of the Islamic Republic, as the nation unanimously stood beside the revolution and its enlightened leadership to defeat these anti-social elements, including a group of characterless women, trying to misuse freedom against the dignity of Iranian culture.
