The Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has warned the Iraqi government about trusting the US government, saying that the Iraqis must be wary of the American’s plots.
Speaking in a Thursday meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi in Tehran, Iran’s Leader expressed his support for the efforts made by the Iraqi government to develop relations with the neighbouring and regional countries.
However, the Leader warned that “never trust the United States.”
Ayatollah Khamenei added that the Americans themselves created ISIS, but now that the Iraqi government and people have inflicted a heavy defeat on terrorists, they pretend to be a part of this important development.
“Of course, there is no doubt that whenever they find the opportunity, they will deal a blow to Iraq again,” the Leader underlined.
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution also voiced his support for the Iraqi government’s actions to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity, and called Iraq a pivotal and important country in the Arab world.
Ayatollah Khamenei noted that the unity of the various ethnic groups and the support of the Iraqi government for the popular forces and the brave and believing Iraqi youths led to the recent victories against the terrorists and their backers.
He also threw his weight behind the expansion of ties between Tehran and Baghdad in various fields adding that, “As a result of the efforts and courage of the Iraqi people, you (PM Abadi) and other Iraqi officials, the attention of the regional nations is drawn to the successes of Iraq.”
