Resistance pays off, says Khamenei

Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said yesterday that resistance by nations against major world powers pays off, state television reported.
"People and their government's resistance and their demanding their rights will bear fruit," Khamenei said during a meeting with visiting Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, the report said.
The meeting was held on the last day of a three-day visit by the Algerian leader to Tehran.
"The Iranian nation and government achieved all the progress they have despite pressures, sanctions, and threats by the domineering powers," Khamenei said.
Tehran has been at loggerheads with the West for the past five years over its controversial nuclear programme.
During Bouteflika's visit, Tehran and Algiers inked separate agreements on avoiding double taxation and customs cooperation as well as a memorandum of understanding for banking cooperation, the television said.
