Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the US’ “corruption-spreading” presence in the region must end, and that is what regional countries want.
“The US has caused war, division, sedition, destruction, and the demolition of infrastructures in this region. Of course they do this everywhere in the world. This region won’t accept the US presence. Governments elected by nations won’t accept the presence of the US,” he noted.
“They insist on spreading this corruption to Iran as well,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, referring to the calls for negotiation between the two sides as a prelude to that.
“This needs to end,” he said, saying that regional states do not accept such presence.
The Leader referred to the IRGC‘s missile strikes against the US’ Ain al-Assad military as a slap in the US’ face, saying that “revenge” is something else. He said the revenge will be taken once the US leaves the region.
