Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei stressed that the US’ claims to fight terrorism in the region is a lie, noting that Washington is the side who created ISIL terrorist group.
Addressing a group of the senior officials late Monday, Imam Khamenei lashed out US over accusations against Iran’s Islamic establishment including those related to the issue of human rights, terrorism and destabilizing the region.
“You [the United States] and your agents are the source of instability in the Middle East… Who created ISIL? America … America’s claim of fighting against ISIL is a lie.”
“The US is terrorist itself, a terrorist sponsor and an advocate of a regime such as the Zionist regime which is the mastermind of terrorism and was created with terror and oppression. Therefore, it is impossible to deal with the US,” said the Leader.
