MADRID, 12 Jan. –
The Iranian supreme leader, Ali Jamenei, has called on Sunday to strengthen relations between the countries of the region as a solution to “the corrupt presence of the United States and its henchmen.”
“The current situation in the region requires further strengthening of relations between the countries of the region and that there is no foreign influence,” Jamenei said during an act with the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al Zani, of Visit in Tehran.
For Jamenei “obviously there are some countries that do not support the expansion of cooperation between the countries of the region, especially those that have come to our region from the other side of the planet.” “However, they have nothing to do with this. The countries and nations of the region are not going to tolerate this intervention and domination anymore,” he said, according to his official website in a statement.
In fact, for Jamenei “the unfavorable situation in the region is due to the corrupt presence of the United States and its henchmen and the only solution to counteract it is to rely on cooperation between countries in the region.”
Al Zani has stressed that it coincides “completely” with his analysis and the need to “increase cooperation within the region.” “We believe that a large-scale dialogue between the countries of the region should be promoted.”
The death of the powerful Iranian general Qasem Soleimani in an American attack on January 3 in Iraq has triggered one of the biggest crises seen in the region. Iran responded with attacks on two bases in Iraq with an American presence and ended up accidentally shooting down a civilian plane by confusing it with a missile. The 176 occupants of the device died.
