Leader pays tribute to Imam Khomeini

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has paid tribute to the late founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, at the Imam’s Mausoleum in Tehran.

Ayatollah Khamenei visited the Imam Khomeini Mausoleum on Wednesday on the eve of the anniversary of the Imam’s return to Iran from forced exile by the country’s ousted monarchical Pahlavi regime in Paris in 1979.

Iranians hold ten-day-long celebrations every year, starting with the anniversary of Imam Khomeini’s return and culminating in the anniversary of the Islamic Revolution’s victory.
