Iranian MPs Join ‘#We-Don’t-Allow-It-Either’ Campaign
Addressing participants in the 8th International General Assembly of Islamic Radios and Televisions Union in Tehran on Monday, Ayatollah Khamenei described Iran and the US regional policies as complete opposite, and said Tehran is standing firm against Washington’s divisive plots in the region.
The Leader referred to the recent nuclear agreement between Iran and the world powers, and said, “Washington imagined that it could use this agreement whose fate is not clear yet – as its final approval is not yet a definite fact neither in Iran nor in the US – to find a way to wield influence in Iran; and this was their intention.”
But “we closed this path; and we will definitely keep it closed”, he underlined.
“We will not allow the US to influence (our) economy, or politics or culture. We will stand against such penetration with all our power – that is, thanks God, at a high level today,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
“They seek to disintegrate the regional states and create small and subordinate countries but God willing, this will not happen,” Ayatollah Khamenei warned, elaborating on the US regional policies.
“Disintegration of Iraq and, if they can, Syria is the clear policy of the Americans, but the territorial integrity of the regional states, Iraq and Syria is highly important to us,” he added.
Ayatollah Khamenei elaborated on Iran’s regional policies, and said, “Iran fully supports resistance in the region, specially the resistance in Palestine, and will support anyone who struggles against Israel and strikes at the Zionist regime.”
Noting that fighting against the US divisive policies in the region is one of Iran’s main policies, he voiced strong protest at the propaganda efforts made in London under the pretext of supporting Shiites and against the Sunni Muslims, and said such moves merely serve the arrogant powers.
Ayatollah Khamenei also stressed Iran’s support for all the oppressed people, including the Bahrainis and the Yemenis, but meantime stressed, “Despite baseless claims, we don’t interfere in these countries but continue supporting the oppressed people.”
