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.
Iran and the P5+1 group singed a nuclear deal in July that — if implemented — will lift the sanctions on the Islamic Republic.
