Gholamreza Neyshaburi: "Mr. Putin, the Russian president, holds the great leader of the revolution [Khamenei] in very high regard, and he has been heard saying: 'I am a follower of the leader of the Iranian revolution.' Like him, many on the global scene accept and build upon the policies and views of our honorable leader. It is said the Mr. Putin told his staff, 'whenever the President of Iran delivers a speech, I want a translation of his speech on my desk within an hour or two, because I have faith in this leader and believe in him.' Many world leaders approve of and follow our leader's views."
