Imam Khamenei: US Intervention Will Cause Disaster for the Whole Region
Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei has warned against any US military intervention in Syria, noting that the repercussions of such action would be unpredictable.
Imam Khamenei stressed that foreign intervention in Syria is nothing but warmongering.
Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with the Iranian president Sheikh Hassan Rouhani and cabinet members, pointing that the Middle East is like a gunpowder warehouse where nothing can be predicted stated: "Any intervention by the United States will cause a disaster for the whole region."
He assured that any foreign meddling in Syria or any other country will only mean stirring the flames of war and conflict.
Imam Khamenei further warned that the US will reap losses in Syria like it did in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution went on to say "The region lives sensitive and critical moments, adding "Iran does not want to meddle with internal Egyptian affairs at all, but it vehemently condemns the assailants -whoever they are- for committing massacres and shooting unarmed civilians."
Imam Khamenei accentuated that "The goal is the return of democracy and the voice of the people," noting "after a long period of hegemony and tyranny, the people attained sovereignty owing to the Islamic Revolution."
"This process [the Islamic Revolution] must not stop or wane," he concluded.
