Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks in a meeting with top commanders from the Iranian Army Ground Force in Tehran on Sunday, IRNA reported.
Ayatollah Khamenei called on the young forces serving in the army to make every effort and use all human potentials and innovations to help it make progress.
He also commended Iran’s Army commander for his emphasis on unity among all Iranian Armed Forces, describing such a stance as a sign of the commander’s executive intelligence.
Ayatollah Khamenei praised Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi for his recent “revolutionary and unifying” comments about the solidarity between the army and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).
The comments came a day after the army chief expressed backing for the IRGC, saying all Iranian military forces work hand in hand against the Zionist regime of Israel.
