A leading Iranian journalist says Saudi Arabia has asked Iran to pave the way for Riyadh’s honourable exit from Yemen which has been the target of Saudis air raids since 2015.
Hossein Shariatmadari, the Editor-in-Chief of Iranian daily Kayhan, in a recent speech claimed the Saudis have asked Iran to help them end the Yemen crisis without losing more face.
He said Saudi Arabia was expected to take full control of Yemen in just three days but it is now four years into the conflict and Saudis are still desperately seeking to occupy Yemen.
“Since the beginning of the war in Yemen, the Saudis have done nothing but brutally massacring Yemeni civilians,” he was quoted as saying by IRNA.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Shariatmadari referred to efforts by certain circles to imply that the ghost of war is hovering over the Iranian nation and said this is part of enemies’ trick to disappoint Iranian people but to no avail.
He also said the Islamic Republic is now standing at its highest level of progress and added enemies will withhold no animosity towards Iran to stop its development.
Elsewhere, the Iranian journalist underlined that the enemies’ plot to highlight the gap between Iran and its ideal point is a trick to disappoint the nation and said the Islamic Republic has already made significant progress compared with the pre-Revolution era but it should continue its efforts to bridge further the gap.
He also called on Iranian revolutionary youths to remain vigilant against the enemies’ plots to portray them as a minority group in the Iranian society.
Islamic View Remains Influential In Region
Shariatmadari then underlined that today, Islamic views are alive in Syria as Jaish al-Watani, in Iraq as Hashd al-Shaabi, in Palestine as Hamas and in Yemen in Ansarullah.
The journalist also referred to the anti-Iran Warsaw conference held recently and added the conference was held with the aim of creating a psychological war against the Islamic Republic but “after its closure, the enemies declared that the conference was focused on the Middle East. This was a big lie by the arrogant powers.”
Elsewhere, he said Niki Haley, the former US envoy to the United Nations once announced after her resignation that she had been tasked with portraying Trump as a crazy man to coerce Iran and other US enemies in the world into accepting Washington’s hegemony.
Revolution’s Second Phase to Overcome Challenges
Shariatmadari then referred to the domestic challenges that the Islamic Republic is facing and said leader of the Islamic Revolution has already offered some clues to remove all the domestic problems.
“The roadmap set forth by the wise leader Ayatollah Khamenei is now available and we should follow it not to get misled,” he noted.
The journalist underlined that the Iranian nation will never fall victim to the nasty deceptions of the enemies.
“Over the past forty years, Iranians have managed to free themselves of the enemies’ domination and choose their own fate,” he said.
He cited Islam as a religion with anti-oppression inclinations and said Iran by relying on Islamic teachings is challenging the international domination.
Shariatmadari said today’s domestic problems are deeply rooted in the penetration of American and liberalist teachings into the Iranian society.
