US Treats All Countries in Instrumental Way
Friday, March 30, 2012
Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says Tehran categorically opposes any foreign intervention in Syria and supports Damascus for backing the resistance front against Israel.
“The Islamic Republic will defend Syria because of its support for the resistance front against the Zionist regime (Israel) and is vehemently opposed to any intervention by foreign forces in Syrian internal affairs,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
The Leader also expressed Iran’s support for the reform process underway in Syria and called for the reforms' momentum to be maintained.
Ayatollah Khamenei further slammed the instrumental view of the hegemonic powers and the US in particular towards the regional states, noting, “The Americans recognize no nation as an independent nation.”
“The Americans treat all countries in instrumental way, and therefore the interests of Islamic countries should be taken into account in decision-makings,” the Leader said.
Pointing to the recent developments in the region, Ayatollah Khamenei said that they have all served the interests of Islam and Muslims so far and will continue to do so in the future.
The most important issue at the current critical juncture for the region is that independent nations make “correct decisions,” the Leader emphasized.
