Adviser to the Ayatollah Ali Khameini of the Islamic Republic of Iran and a member of Expediency Council denounced the visit by US Secretary of State’s regional visit to Qatar as producing no outcome, since “Syrian people would not give in the ruses of the US and reactionary regimes of the region.”

Speaking at the 2nd International Conference on Constitutional Revolution on Wednesday, Velayati said that even though the US seeks always to support terrorist groups in Syria despite claims of fighting them, the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is now stronger than 4 years ago since the destabilization of security in his country.

“They [Americans] always support and foster terrorists; definitely, Assad is even stronger than 4 years ago; and will resist against ISIL [the so-called ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ takfiri group] and former Baathists who are now fighting his army,” he underlined.

“Iran supports the public will in Yemen, Iraq and Syria,” the Iranian official stressed.

Velayati, who is also the Secretary-General of the World Assembly of Islamic Awakening, also touched upon nuclear deal with world powers stating that “the most important issue is its implementation; western powers had not lived to their promises during the history. We would negotiate with them,” he emphasized.

“It is quite unparalleled in the history that a country sits on the table and negotiate six world powers; if not for the people’s resistance, such achievements would not be possible to strike; Iran is the first country enjoying the status of recognition of its nuclear program in the United Nations,” he concluded.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
