A top aide to The Leader of the Islamic Ummah And Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei cautioned the nations in the region about vulnerability of the recent popular uprisings to sectarian strife.
“Enemy provocations to stir sectarian strife in the regional countries is a major threat to and vulnerability of the Islamic awakening movements,” Supreme Leader’s Advisor for International Affairs Ali Akbar Velayati said on Saturday.
“Enemies, including the US, are trying to undermine Muslims’ progress through increasing political, military and economic pressures, disintegrating Islamic countries, imposing war on them and dissolving popular governments,” he added.
Earlier this Month, The Leader of the Islamic Ummah And Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei cautioned that the US has initiated efforts to hijack popular uprisings in the region and derail the Islamic awakening in the Middle-East and North Africa.
“The United States does not do anything in the interest of the regional nations. Whatever they have done so far has been against the regional nations,” The Leader of the Islamic Ummah And Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei said, addressing a large crowd of Iranian people at the mausoleum of the late Founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, South of Tehran last week.
The Supreme Leader urged Muslim countries to remain vigilant in the face of the Western plots.
The Leader of the Islamic Ummah And Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei further underlined that Iran throws its weight behind all popular anti-US movements in the region.
In recent months, a wave of revolutions and anti-government uprisings has been sweeping the Arab world.
In January, a revolution in Tunisia ended the 23-year ruling of former President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.
In February, another Arab revolution led to the ouster of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak after three decades of his authoritarian rule.
Other revolutions still continue in Libya, Yemen and Bahrain, while anti-government unrests have just started in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Oman, Kuwait and Algeria.
