A senior Iranian military official says Iran is the winner of the military and political strategy formulated by the Unites States in the Middle East, stressing that Americans are not trustworthy.
According to Press TV, Brigadier General Yahya Rahim-Safavi said “During the Bonn conference in Germany, Iran offered consultative assistance about the government after the Taliban in Afghanistan but the Americans offered no concessions to Iran and based on this reason and other reasons, the Americans cannot be trusted.”
Safavi, who is a senior military adviser to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, made the remarks on Monday.
The Iranian military official said that the US faced a “strategic defeat” in war against Afghanistan as it failed to achieve its main objectives and also suffered great loss.
Rahim-Safavi stated “Although the US managed to kill Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan, it failed to overthrow the Taliban ….”
