He added: "Despite the inefficiencies of many years that have slowed down the country's progress, the effective and efficient presence of the Basij and the IRGC has only one reason, and that is the Basij culture that the Imam Khomeini instilled in the people of Iran and in the holy defense crystallized and grew".
