A senior Iranian security official says some countries that think they can ensure their own security and stability of the region by putting their trust in the United States are practically bolstering terrorism.
Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani made the remarks in a meeting with Faleh al-Fayad, the National Security Advisor to the Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, in Tehran on Monday.
“The White House leaders do not even hesitate to shamelessly attack Iraqi and Syrian armed forces in order to support terrorism and those countries that suppose they can ensure their domestic security and regional stability by trusting America are practically bolstering terrorism,” he added.
“An important part of regional crises are led and designed by the US and the Zionist regime in cooperation with certain regional countries,” the SNSC secretary pointed out.
However, he said, the Iraqi people have proved that security is not an issue that can be purchased and that they can overcome the “biggest security threats” by relying on their own capabilities instead of trusting foreign powers.
Shamkhani expressed regret that some regional countries claiming to be leader of the Muslim world have become a milking cow for the US and a strategic ally for ‘Israel’.
