Former DM Warns of US Plots to Deploy Terrorists in Eastern Iran
“We have precise information about the US assistance to the terrorist groups in Iraq and Syria,” Vahidi said, addressing a forum in Tehran on Tuesday.
“The Eastern Iran region and Asia is where that they want to transfer the terrorist to,” he added.
Vahidi, who is currently the Head of the Strategic Center of the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, referred to the existence of the US bases in the region, and said the coasts of Oman might also be one of the primary places from which threats can be posed to Iran.
In relevant remarks last May, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei underlined that the US statesmen are terrorists and they support terrorism and terrorist groups in the region.
“The one who blatantly supports terrorism is the US,” the Supreme Leader said.
Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to the false allegations of the Americans on Iran’s support for terrorism, and said, “The Iranian nation has firmly confronted the terrorism that had grown in the country with the US money and support.”
Iran’s Supreme Leader underlined that the Iranian nation will always confront terrorism and its supporters, and said, “The Iranian nation will cooperate with all those who are standing up to the most dangerous terrorists and the terrorist Zionists in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and the occupied territories.”
Recalling the US terrorist acts and addressing the US statesmen, he said, “You are terrorist, terrorist action is what you do; we are against terrorism and fight against it and also support all the oppressed.”
