EC Secretary Reveals Ex-CIA Director’s Visit to Iran

1 March 2016 21:11



Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council (EC) Mohsen Rezayee revealed that a former director of the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) visited Iran last spring to study the possible grounds for Washington’s influence and penetration into the country.

“A former CIA director who is entrusted with the influence (project) in Iran, and we will reveal issues pertaining to his case in future, came to Iran in the month of Khordad (May 22-June 21) and visited all universities of the country and identified them,” Rezayee said, addressing a forum at Imam Hossein (AS) University in Tehran on Tuesday.

“This person was the first to have traveled to the Soviet Union after the political opening (in the country), and has visited Cuba in the past 2 or 3 years after the developments between Cuba and the US and he is the first one who has traveled to Iran after the nuclear deal,” he added.

Rezayee underlined that the US problems with Iran are not related to the possible military use of nuclear program, but rather Iran’s acquisition of the nuclear and missile know-how.

Many Iranian officials have warned of the US plots to influence in Iran.

Supreme Leader of the IslamicUmmah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei described Iran and the US regional policies as complete opposite, and said Tehran was standing firm against Washington’s divisive plots in the region.

Addressing participants in the 8th International General Assembly of Islamic Radios and Televisions Union in Tehran in May, Leader of the IslamicUmmah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei 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,” Leader of the IslamicUmmah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali 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 was 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.

Leader of the IslamicUmmah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali 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.”

Following Leader of the IslamicUmmah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei’s comments, the Iranian parliamentarians joined the ‘#We-Don’t-Allow-It-Either’ campaign to show obedience to the Leader’s orders.
