He wished Raeisi best of luck and success in his new tasks that carry on the course of the Islamic revolution in leading the country towards more prosperity and progress in all domains and that serve the interests of the Iranian people who kept steadfast in the face of all the schemes which aimed at breaking their will and confiscating their independent decision.
