Cairo – (agencies):
Iran’s supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, has devoted part of his Friday sermon, which he is giving for the first time in 8 years, to speaking in Arabic in which he addresses relations with Iraq, according to CNN Arabia.
Khamenei said in Arabic: “This is a tremendous preoccupation with this to create a negative view between the Iraqi and Iranian people and spent huge money and recruited individuals who do not feel responsible in Iran against the Iraqi people. All malicious obsessions. “
The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution added: “The Islamic ability is our ability and your ability can overcome the material prestige surrounding it itself subject to .. subjected Western powers, relying on science and technology and false media and cunning political methods managed to dominate the countries of the region through espionage and political and economic control and planting the gland Zionist cancer in the heart of Western Asia. “
He continued, saying: “After the victory of the Islamic revolution, the Zionist entity inflicted blows, followed by a series of defeats of arrogance.”
Iran has bombed two American bases in Iraq (one of them two Assad) in response to the killing of Soleimani in a US attack early this month near Baghdad airport in which Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, deputy chief of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Authority, was also killed.
Khamenei said in his Friday sermon, the first time that he had prayed 8 years ago, that the fate of the region depended on freedom from American hegemony and the liberation of Palestine.
He added that the anti-government protests in Iran would not change the country’s political track.
On the incident of the Ukrainian plane that crashed in Iran on the eighth of this month, he said, “Our hearts suffered for the bitter plane crash, indicating that the American media wanted the Iranian people to forget the martyrdom of the two martyrs focusing on the plane crash,” noting that the enemies rejoiced in the plane crash They sought to hold the Revolutionary Guards accountable.
On the announcement of Britain, France and Germany to activate the mechanism of resolving disputes with Iran, Khamenei made it clear that these three European countries are too young to kneel on the Iranian people, stressing that “France, Britain and Germany serve the interests of America and cannot be trusted in the nuclear agreement.”
The three countries announced last Tuesday the activation of the dispute settlement mechanism with Iran, after violating the obligations stipulated in the nuclear agreement that was reached in 2015.
The eventual activation of the mechanism allows for the reimposition of sanctions against Tehran.
And Iran announced last week that it would not fulfill any obligations under the agreement, after the assassination of the United States, Soleimani.
